Description:The prices of CTA passes are going up Monday as the transit agency attempts to generate an extra $56 million a year.
The hikes, as steep as 74%, cut the discounts that unlimited ride tickets offer.
The CTA base fare will remain the same, $2 for bus rides and $2.25 for train rides.
However, the price for the Blue Line from O’Hare Airport is going up to $5.
Pay-as-you-go users will not feel much impact.(1:46)
