Seniors get transition period for learning how to pay for transit again

Transit agencies decided to cut senior citizens a break today.

Conductors were giving a pass to elderly riders who didn’t have their new reduced-fare permits as they boarded buses and trains.

That’s despite months of announcements from the Regional Transportation Authority, the CTA, Metra and Pace about today being the end of the free rides for senior citizens.

The CTA said today that no one will be denied access to bus and rail services during a brief transition period – estimated to go through sometime next week. No exact date was specified yet.
