CTA Transports Students Free On First Day Of School

The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) reminds parents that it will provide students with free bus and train rides on the first day of school, Tuesday, September 8, as part of Mayor Emanuel's "First Day, Free Rides" program, which is now in its fifth year.
  • In addition, students who are enrolled in school are eligible to ride the CTA for 75 cents Monday through Friday from 5:30 a.m. - 8:30 p.m. while school is in session. 
  • Beyond school hours, elementary students ages 7-11 pay reduced fares of $1 on the bus and $1.10 on rail.  Individuals ages 12 and older pay full fare.
