Skip Uber Surge Pricing
Since it will be nearly impossible to get a taxi, and no one wants to pay Uber surge prices, keep in mind that the CTA will provide FREE rides on all CTA buses and trains beginning at 10:00p.m. on Monday, December 31 until 4:00 a.m. Tuesday, January 1, 2019.
Don’t tap your Ventra card
If you accidentally tap your Ventra card during the promotion you will be charged for a full-price ride and the CTA does not offer refunds.
All CTA bus and rail service will operate on a Sunday schedule on Tuesday, January 1, 2019.
For details about all CTA service on New Year’s Eve call 836-7000 (all local area codes) or visit the CTA Website.
Expanded bus service
The CTA used to offer expanded bus service, particularly to/from Navy Pier on New Year’s Eve but this is the 2nd year I’ve scoured the CTA website and cannot find the info.
