Chicago offers free rides to military personnel

Posted on August 1, 2008

The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) announced that active U.S. military personnel and qualifying disabled veterans will be able to register for the new CTA Military Service Pass, which will allow them to ride free on the system's buses and trains.

The creation of a Military Service Pass program was authorized by the Chicago City Council in February. Earlier this year, the CTA began offering free rides for active duty military personnel dressed in full uniform and began developing a Military Service Pass that could be used to register and identify eligible participants who are not in uniform.

Qualified disabled veterans and active duty military personnel not in uniform must have the CTA issued Military Service Pass in order to ride free. Active duty military personnel dressed in full uniform may continue to ride CTA buses and trains free without the new pass.
