CTA to offer free rides on New Year's Eve

CHICAGO (WLS) -- The CTA is offering free rides to help people get home from New Year's Eve parties safely.

Rides on all bus routes and rail lines will be free from 10 p.m. Wednesday to 4 a.m. Thursday. The CTA is also extending hours and adding more trains and buses on many routes.

"As Chicagoans celebrate this New Year's Eve, I am pleased the CTA will be offering a convenient, free and responsible transportation option for revelers," said Mayor Emanuel. "The CTA is continuing a tradition of more than 25 years of ringing in the New Year with penny ride service."
