Metra is encouraging music fans attending Lollapalooza to use public transit for travel to and from Chicago by offering a special two-day unlimited ride train pass.
The special passes go on sale Monday, July 16 at all ticket windows and through the Ventra App. The $15 commemorative ticket, featuring Lollapalooza-branded artwork, will be good for unlimited rides on the Metra system on Thursday, Aug. 2 and Friday, Aug. 3. Festival goers traveling on Saturday and Sunday will be able to purchase Metra’s $10 Weekend Pass, which also offers unlimited rides. The Ventra App is available for download in the App Store or Google Play.
“This is the fifth year we’ve partnered with Lollapalooza to help bring tens of thousands of festivalgoers safely to downtown Chicago,” said Metra CEO/Executive Director Jim Derwinski. “With five downtown train stations within walking distance of Grant Park, Metra is a great travel option. This special pass in addition to our Weekend Pass makes Metra not just the safest travel choice but the most economical choice too.”
