Metra is trying to take the sting out of record-high gas prices.  

The transit company is offering a $100 monthly “Super Saver” pass that would be good for unlimited travel throughout Chicagoland. The passes will be available starting in July.  

A reduced “Super Saver” pass will be offered for $70d to seniors, children, and students from kindergarten through 12th grade. 

The passes go on sale starting June 20.  

Metra plans a three-month pilot period for the new pass. 

Metra will continue to sell the $6 day pass, valid for unlimited travel within one to three fare zones in a single day, and the $10 day pass, valid for unlimited travel systemwide in a single day.
