Flexible schedules and convenient connections make Metra, the Chicago area's commuter rail system, great for family travel to recreation and fun.
Our 10-Ride ticket can be shared by people riding together. On weekends, our $7 Weekend Pass is good for unlimited rides on all Metra lines. And our Weekend Family Fares allow up to 3 children age 11 and under to ride FREE on Metra with a fare-paying adult. You can use your Monthly, 10-Ride Ticket or you can purchase either a one-way ticket or Metra's Weekend Pass.
