Riders taking the CTA Blue Line from O’Hare International Airport will see a hike in fare, which went into effect this morning.

The price more than doubles beginning today from $2.25 to $5 between the airport and downtown, but people using a Chicago Card avoid the higher fare.

CTA officials hope to collect about $4 million more through the end of the year.

10,000 riders will use Blue Line trains on an average weekday.
