Goooaaalll!!! Let CTA Be Your Ride to the Chicago Fire’s Home Opener

February 29, 2024

CTA’s trains and buses are the best and most affordable way to get to a variety of events, including games at United Center and Soldier Field

You can count on CTA to get you to Soldier Field to cheer on the Chicago Fire at their first home game of the season. 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.
