CTA released its new budget and fare prices. Here’s what that means for you

The Chicago Transit Authority unveiled its 2022 budget this week, and includes some reduced fares. Bus and rail fares will remain the same, but daily, weekly and monthly passes — as well as the $.25 transfer fee — could all be slashed if the budget is approved by the CTA board next month.

Reset talks to CTA spokesperson Brian Steele to break down the changes, and learn how the city will invest in its infrastructure.
