The CTA board approved joining a pilot program for an unlimited day pass covering Metra, CTA and Pace that would be available via the Ventra app.

CHICAGO (WLS) -- The Chicago Transit Authority Board met Tuesday to add their approval to a pilot program for a multi-transit day pass.

The Regional Transportation Authority's board has already voted for a day pass that would allow unlimited rides on all three transit systems across Chicago: Metra, CTA and Pace.

The system-wide pass would be good for one calendar day and cost between $10 and $16.

Metra has approved the plan, as has CTA as of today. Pace is set to approve the plan on Wednesday.

If approved, the pass pilot program would be launched later in 2024 on the Ventra app.
