$100, unlimited: Metra to try new monthly pass for the rest of summer

Coming soon on a three-month trial basis — a $100 unlimited monthly rides option from Metra.

Full fare “Super Saver” passes will cost $100, while a reduced fare pass for eligible seniors, K-12 students and children will cost $70.  You’ll have to buy your pass on the Ventra app in order to take advantage.

Unlimited rides for $100 to combat rising fuel prices? The commuter rail is betting this may the answer for many commuters.

The new fare is available starting July 1st.
