With the holiday celebrations fast approaching, CTA recommends revelers be ‘penny-wise’ and take advantage of penny rides on CTA buses and trains to ring in the New Year.
The annual tradition continues beginning late in the evening on Friday, December 31 through the early morning hours on New Year’s Day, Saturday, January 1.
“Penny rides are our way of encouraging people to leave their cars at home and let the CTA be their designated driver over the New Year’s holiday,” said CTA President Richard L. Rodriguez. “The CTA is continuing a 25-year tradition of ringing in the new year with our penny ride service.”
Taking the CTA not only makes travel safer for those riding, but also reduces traffic congestion by keeping more drivers off the road.
