This weekend, Ride With Pride!

June 23, 2022

Extra service to Pride events, concerts, sporting events and the Navy Pier Fireworks


If you are heading to this weekend’s Pride Parade and other festivities throughout the city, take the CTA to diminish the stress over high gas prices and expensive parking. 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.
