CTA’s winning, affordable fares will get you to and from the ballparks and more, for the price of a hotdog! Customers can save more on unlimited rides by purchasing either the CTA’s 1-Day ($5) – more economical and convenient than a gallon of gas - or the 3-Day ($15) pass – a real budget-saving move.
