January 14, 2013 3:28:11 AM PST
The cost of most Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) passes goes up Monday, but students will get a new fare discount.

The CTA is raising the price of one-day, three-day, seven-day, and 30-day passes to help balance its 2013 budget.

However, students ages 7 to 20 will now pay a 75-cent fare during school hours. Until now, students had paid the general reduced fare.
