Metra Announces Extension of its Popular Family Fares Program
(June 2, 2009) -
Metra will extend its popular “Family Fares” program to include weekdays, starting Monday, June 15 through Friday, September 4.
Normally available only on weekends and holidays, Metra’s “Family Fares” allow up to three children under age 12 to ride free with a fare-paying adult.
Families can realize additional savings with Metra’s $5 Weekend Pass for unlimited Saturday/Sunday rides or 10-Ride tickets that save 15 percent off one-way tickets. Both can be used in conjunction with Family Fares.
For the July 4th holiday weekend, riders will be able to purchase a special three-day $5 unlimited-ride ticket on Friday, July 3, Saturday, July 4 and Sunday, July 5. This special ticket will also allow one adult to take up to three children under 12 along for free.
For complete schedule information, customers may contact Metra Passenger Services, 312-322-6777, during business hours, visit metrarail.com, or call the RTA Travel Information Center at 836-7000.
