CTA to hold public hearing over possible cash fare hike
The CTA is holding a public hearing Monday night to talk about another fare hike.
The agency has proposed raising the price of a train ride 75 cents, to $3 a trip.
The increase would affect people who use single ride cards instead of the new Ventra cards that are being phased into the system.
The Ventra cards will cost you $5, unless you go online and set up an account that allows you to prepay your fares with a credit card.
Bus riders who pay cash won’t have to pay extra.
Monday’s meeting takes place at 6 p.m. at CTA headquarters, 567 W. Lake street.
