Visitor Passes

If you plan on spending your time exploring Chicago after your Adler School visit, you can save money by purchasing a visitor pass from the CTA. Passes are activated on the first use, and allow unlimited rides for the specified time. For example, a 1 day pass costs $10 and is good for unlimited rides for 24 hours upon activation. Visitor passes are available at Currency Exchanges, select Walgreens, Jewel, and Dominick’s, and online at the CTA website (allow time for order processing and mailing).

You can also pay cash or load money onto a fare card and pay per ride; however, it’s important to note that exact change is required on busses and they do not give change. Current fares can be found on the CTA website.
