Celebrating 75 years of service

75th anniversary logo

For three-quarters of a century, we have connected customers and communities to activities and opportunities, and we have plans to celebrate the integral role the CTA has played in the city’s growth and progress.

In the coming months, as we move closer to our historic destination – a Diamond Jubilee Celebration in Daley Plaza, on October 1, 2022 - the public can participate in fun activities celebrating the heritage of one of the world’s most iconic transit agencies.
