Some CTA Blue Line riders will be spared fare hike

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The CTA is sparing some Blue Line passengers from recent fare hike for pass-holders.

Most commuters will pay $5 to go from O'Hare International Airport to downtown Chicago when the increase takes effect. That's double the current fare.

Here are more changes:

  • A one-day pass will jump to $10 from $5.75.
  • A three-day pass will go from $14 to $20.
  • A one-week pass will jump from $23 to $28.
  • Monthly passes will go from $86 to $100.

The transit agency decided to exempt airport workers, airlines and companies operating at the airport from the fare hike. Riders who use Chicago Cards or the Chicago Card Plus will also be spared the $5 fare, when they board the train at O'Hare.

The new fare goes into effect on Jan. 14.
