Metra ~ Made for Summer
Now through Labor Day, up to 3 children 11 and under ride free every day with each fare-paying adult!
And new this summer: we’ve made changes to some of our lines. The pilot project on three lines – Rock Island, Union Pacific Northwest and BNSF Railway offers express service and additional train options to get you to and from all your summer fun! Also, Monthly Pass holders can now travel outside the zones indicated on their passes at no additional cost on weekends. And as always, our unlimited ride Weekend Pass offers rides all day on both Saturday and Sunday for just $10. Buy the $10 Weekend Pass on the train, at a station or from your smartphone with the FREE Ventra App.
Visit our Travel Guides page that offers ideas and includes easy-to-use travel information from your downtown station to the fun Chicago locations you’ll be visiting this summer. Or take Metra downtown and go on a walking tour to see some of the city’s amazing architecture, public art and other points of interest.
