Elimination of Ticket-by-Internet program
First Published - 04/27/2018 - 10:24AM

Due to declining internet ticket sales, Metra is eliminating the Ticket-by-Internet program – which includes recurring orders and one-time sales of Monthly Passes and 10-Ride Tickets on its website. The last day to purchase a Monthly Pass (July) via this program will be June 20 and the last day to purchase a 10-Ride Ticket will be June 30. This action is part of a continuing effort by Metra to identify ways to reduce expenses. Please see alternate purchasing options here.

Certification

Pursuant to the requirements of the federal regulation 49 CFR part 26, all recipients of US DOT financial assistance must implement a "one-stop" certification process for Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs). As a result of this requirement, five US DOT-funded agencies - the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), City of Chicago, CTA, Metra and Pace - have established the IL UCP.

The IL UCP is based on the concept of reciprocity among the agencies. "One-stop" shopping will be provided to applicants for the DBE program, such that an applicant need only to apply once for DBE certification, and the resulting decision will be honored by all participating agencies in the IL UCP.

The application can be completed online, but the completed application must be mailed along with all the required documentation to:

Metra’s Office of Business Diversity & Civil Rights
547 W. Jackson Blvd., 5-W
Chicago, IL  60661
