(Effective July 18, 2018):
No refund or replacement ticket will be issued for lost, destroyed or stolen One-Way or 10-Ride Ticket or Weekend or Monthly passes. All customers must have a ticket in their possession at the time of travel.
MONTHLY PASSES are subject to a $5 handling fee if returned after the first day of the month
MONTHLY PASSES PURCHASED VIA TRANSIT BENEFIT OR RTA DEBIT CARD
Metra is not permitted to issue refunds for Monthly Passes purchased using a Transit Benefit (tax deferred) form of payment. Refunds for tickets purchased through this channel will need to be processed through the passenger’s employer and back through the vendor managing the Transit Benefit Program. This includes purchases made with an RTA Debit Card.
MONTHLY PASS REFUND FORMULA
All Monthly Passes, regardless of method of payment, will be refunded on a percentage basis depending on the date returned, with 100 percent refunded on or before Day 1 of the month for which the ticket is valid and 85 percent refunded on Day 2. The amount refunded continues to be reduced by 5 percent for every day thereafter until close of business on day 18 of the month, at which time no refund is permitted.
MONTHLY PASS REFUNDS AVAILABLE VIA MAIL
Any Monthly Pass except for those purchased with tax-deferred dollars, may be submitted to our Revenue Accounting Department for refund.
