Metra to end website ticket sales

Metra announced recently that because of declining internet ticket sales, the company will eliminate website ticket sales, including recurring orders and one-time sales of monthly passes and 10-ride tickets.

The last day to purchase a monthly pass on the website will be June 20, and the last day to purchase a 10-ride ticket will be June 30.

This action is part of a continuing effort by Metra to identify ways to reduce expenses. 
Metra customers who have recurring website ticket orders or who make occasional one-time website purchases can use the following alternatives:
  • Buy tickets from a ticket agent or ticket vending machine.
  • Use the Ventra App, available for free download from the App Store or Google Play to buy and display mobile tickets on their smartphone.
  • Take advantage of their employer’s transit benefits program (if offered) to use pretax dollars to buy Metra tickets and have them delivered by mail each month.
