$10 All-day Metra Pass available thru Labor Day
Metra’s new $10 All-Day Pass will now be available thru Labor Day. Metra strongly encourages customers to buy it in the Ventra app, so you can have a “Touch Less, Pay Less” option to ride its trains safely and affordably. Metra is heavily cleaning and disinfecting trains every day. They also have onboard plans to create social distance and keep people safe.
$10 All-day Metra Pass available thru Labor Day – Unlimited rides
The All-Day Pass will be good for unlimited rides on any and all Metra lines all day until 3 a.m. the next morning. For anyone travelling downtown from Metra’s C zone or farther, the pass costs less than two one-way fares. The All-Day Pass will be sold for at least the next two months. Unused All-Day Passes purchased in the Ventra app will expire seven days after purchase.
First responders ride free
Metra continues to support doctors, nurses, EMTs, paramedics and other medical personnel on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic by allowing them to ride free on Metra trains for the duration of the state’s stay-at-home order. To ride free, medical personnel need to present a work ID showing that they are employed at a hospital, doctor’s office, medical facility or local fire department to a Metra conductor.
Metra has spent recent weeks deep cleaning all cars and developing a new cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting regimen to keep customers as safe as possible on a daily basis. More details about that regimen are forthcoming.
