CTA Statement Regarding Non-Approved “Rave Train” Event this Weekend

June 13, 2024

Promoted event on Saturday (6/15) along the Brown Line will not occur 

The event promoted by organizers as the Redline Express “rave train” will not occur along the Brown Line Saturday night, June 15.  
CTA became aware of additional details of the proposed event through the organizer's promotion that raised concerns regarding rider safety, as well as the sale of event tickets, which does not align with CTA’s policy to charter trains only for private, non-commercial purposes.
After careful consideration of all of these factors, this request could not be approved and no formal agreement was entered into between the two parties. CTA notified the event organizer of this decision Wednesday, June 12.
