Skip the hassles of traffic, surge pricing and parking. CTA’s summer fare discount provides all Chicago baseball fans more fun for less fare!

Whether you’re a South Sider or a North Sider, go for the “W” by letting the CTA get you to this weekend’s Crosstown Classic, Round Two, at Guaranteed Rate Field. The CTA is the most convenient and affordable way to get to and from the games this weekend.
