CTA’s Affordable Service will Get you to the Ballpark to Enjoy the Cubs Games

April 20, 2023

Service to/from Chicago Cubs games at Wrigley Field; Weekend work to temporarily impact the Blue Line

CTA is your best choice to travel to Wrigley Field to enjoy baseball and root for the Cubs. Customers can save money by purchasing an unlimited rides pass, 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.
