Flexible schedules and convenient connections make Metra, the Chicago area's commuter rail system, great for family travel to recreation and fun.
Our 10-Ride Ticket can be shared by people riding together. On weekends, our $8 Weekend Pass is good for unlimited rides on all Metra lines. And our Weekend Family Fares allow up to 3 children age 11 and under to ride FREE on Metra with each adult. You can use your Monthly Pass, 10-Ride Ticket or you can purchase either a One-Way Ticket or Weekend Pass.
