Travel Affordably with CTA in the New Year

January 5, 2023

Service to concerts and sporting events at the United Center and Soldier Field

CTA is the most affordable ride to events around town this winter. Customers can save money by purchasing one of our unlimited rides passes, either the 1-Day ($5) – far more economical and convenient than the price of gas and parking - or the 3-Day ($15) pass – a real budget-saving move.

  • Arizona Coyotes vs. Chicago Blackhawks – Fri. 1/6 at 7:30 p.m.
  • Utah Jazz vs. Chicago Bulls – Sat. 1/7 at 7 p.m.
  • Calgary Flames vs. Chicago Blackhawks – Sun. 1/8 at 6 p.m.

Know before you go!
The CTA strongly recommends customers allow extra travel time and plan ahead by downloading the Ventra app, which allows you to manage your Ventra account, and also features a new trip planning tool powered by Google Maps. 

Masks are no longer required on CTA: While the city continues to see low levels of transmission of COVID-19, customers and employees who wish to continue wearing masks are encouraged to do so. We ask all customers to be courteous and respectful to fellow riders.

Fare payment options: We offer a variety of convenient payment options—from smart devices to contactless credit cards. Learn more about payment options and ways you can maximize your dollars with our lower-priced unlimited-ride passes by visiting: transitchicago.com/fares/
