CHICAGO (CBS) — Riding the CTA might get cheaper for some of you.
The proposed budget for next year is out and it includes more fare discounts. The plan discounts the 30-day full fare pass from $105 dollars to $75. The monthly reduced fare pass goes from $50 to $35 dollars.
The budget also eliminates transfer fees between buses and trains and makes the recent discounts in multi-day passes permanent.
CTA ridership is growing this year, but it’s still about half of pre-pandemic levels.
Pandemic or not, our dedicated employees move our City forward. Check out our plans for 2022, which include no fare increases, permanent savings on passes, and lots of tech and modernization projects to improve the transit experience. https://t.co/U8qPooIN01
