CTA Fare Discounts

    The CTA is discounting all its unlimited-ride passes and eliminating transfer fees between trains and buses—part of an effort to encourage ridership and further boost the value of public transit.

    Discounts on Unlimited Ride Passes

    • 1-Day pass: $5 (down from $10)
    • 3-Day pass: $15 (down from $20)
    • 7-Day pass: $20 (down from $28)
    • 30-Day Full Fare pass: $75 (down from $105)
    • 30-Day Reduced Fare pass: $35 (down from $50)
    • CTA-Pace 7-Day pass: $25 (down from $33) – Reflects $5 premium for shared pass with Pace Suburban Bus

    No More Transfer Fees

    CTA will eliminate the 25-cent charge when transferring between CTA buses and trains or vice versa: Customers will now have two free transfers within a two-hour period of their first paid ride.

    Throughout 2022, CTA will work with Pace and Metra to further streamline regional fares, including amending the Metra Link Up pass.
