New CTA Budget Has Some Fare Reductions, Bus-Train Transfer Fees Nixed

CHICAGO (CBS) -- Riding the CTA might get cheaper for some of you.

The proposed budget for next year is out and it includes more fare discounts. The plan discounts the 30-day full fare pass from $105 dollars to $75. The monthly reduced fare pass goes from $50 to $35 dollars.

The budget also eliminates transfer fees between buses and trains and makes the recent discounts in multi-day passes permanent.

CTA ridership is growing this year, but it's still about half of pre-pandemic levels.
