Once again, the CTA will offer free rides on all buses and trains for New Year's Eve. To encourage city residents to leave the car at home and use public transit, the CTA will be offering free rides beginning 10 p.m. on New Year's Eve to 4 a.m. on New Year's Day. Trains and buses will run at the normal weekday schedule on Thursday night, but will operate on the Sunday/Holiday schedule on Friday. Don't worry about having to find a bunch of pennies for NYE, just hop on the bus or train at any point after 10 p.m.
