Chicago Transit to test experimental convention pass

Posted on June 3, 2010

The Chicago Transit Authority's (CTA) board approved an experimental pass designed to encourage the use of CTA as a means to travel around the city while attending conferences and trade shows at McCormick Place.

CTA will partner with individual conventions and events to distribute the pass - which will be known as the C-Pass (Convention Pass). The pass will provide unlimited rides throughout the length of the convention for all attendees of conferences.

The pass designed specifically for conventioneers builds on CTA's successful U-Pass and Visitors' programs and introduces the benefits of using CTA to a group that may not be familiar with the agency.

CTA will sell passes to the convention/event organizers prior to their arrival in Chicago. The organizers will then distribute the passes to their attendees in their convention package. The pass would be valid one day prior through one day after the convention and can be customized with event specific information on the front. The cost of the pass will be dependent upon the length of the convention or event beginning at $3 per person/per day.

The C-Pass will begin as an experiment to allow CTA to evaluate the pass and make adjustments based upon feedback and agency analysis.
