New Metra Weekend Pass. Metra has a new $7 weekend pass in addition to the existing $10 weekend pass. Also new – the $10 pass must be purchased in the Ventra app.
Metra $7 All day Weekend Pass – New
Metra is now offering a $7 Saturday or Sunday Day Pass (available starting Feb. 1). The pass is good for unlimited rides on either Saturday or Sunday.
Metra $10 All Weekend Pass
In addition, the $10 Weekend Pass (available on the Ventra app only starting Feb. 1) is good for unlimited rides on both weekend days. Either pass can be used in conjunction with Metra’s Family Fares. Not valid for travel on the South Shore (NICTD).
Purchase pass through the Ventra app
Customers can also buy the pass with cash or credit from an agent or with cash on the train. However, if a customer boards at a station where they could have purchased the pass from an agent, the conductor will charge an extra $5 fee. Paper passes are good only for the day they are sold.
Metra Covid restrictions
Metra reminds all riders that face coverings, covering both the mouth and nose, must be worn on board trains during the pandemic. Customers should also try to observe physical distancing guidelines; no more than one person per seat, please, unless you are part of a group traveling together. Let’s all work together to keep each other safe.
