Weekend Service Changes

 

 
Jun 23 - 26

 
Chicago Pride Parade - Sunday, June 25

CTA offers convenient service for those attending the 2017 Chicago Pride Parade on Sunday, June 25. To avoid crowded areas like Belmont, attendees are advised to consider viewing the parade from areas like Broadway, south of Montrose -- a short walk from the Wilson and Sheridan stations on the Red Line. We are also providing extra service -- see alert below. For more information, tips and a map and information, visit our Chicago Pride Parade page.

Buy your fare in advance

Avoid long lines after the parade by buying 1-Day Ventra Tickets good for 24hrs (at stations) or loading round-trip value or a pass to your card (online, at over 1,000 retailers or at stations), in advance.

Got Apple Pay, Android Pay or Samsung Pay?

If you’re only taking a single ride (no transfer), you can go straight to the fare reader with your phone to pay! Full fare applies ($2.25/ride at most stations).

Bikes, Strollers and Carts

To accommodate as many riders as possible, and for everyone's safety, the following will be in effect: Bicycles are not permitted on trains, and all strollers and carts are required to be folded prior to boarding buses and trains between 5am and 11:59pm, June 25.
