As a single parent mom, I don't have anyone to drive me and my daughter around town. Public Transportation is always an option for me when I don't want to drive. With all of the simmer festivals and FREE museums days, I always travel using Metra.
I am not sure if you know this, but kids 11 and under ride FREE with a paying adult.
Adults can also purchase Metra's $7 Weekend Pass.
Go here to request Metra's FREE Summer Fun Kit.
The summer Fun Kit contains FREE Fun-Savers coupons that offer super savings for some of Chicago’s most popular attractions, including museums, tours, and other great summer fun destinations. The kit also contains Metra’s Summer Event Planner and a Travel Guide - which gives you easy-to-use travel information personalized from your downtown terminal.
