Fare Game

I don't follow you here.The single asterisk only points out that the $2.25 fare (for now) applies at all L stations except O'Hare..

And if you look up above in the that the single asterisk is next to both the $2.25 current L fare using Ventra transit value and next to the $5 O'Hare premium bringing me to my point that the fare chart implies the $5 seems to only apply if riding the Blue Line from O'Hare is your first or only ride as opposed to the admittedly slim instance of if you rode a Pace #250 or #330 bus first and transferred to the Blue Line as I laid out.

If he means taking either a 250 or 330 to the remote lot and taking the free light right to the terminal where the O'Hare station is located, actually it is possible to transfer. The fare chart though seems to imply that the $5 only applies to when boarding at O'Hare is your first ride since the footnote about the premium fare is linked to both the $2.25 Ventra first ride L fare and the $5 O'Hare premium fare entries.

jajuan is correct. I did this this past summer returning from the Blue Nose Brwy. in Hodgkins. The return route was the Pace route #330 to O'Hare, and the Blue Line “L” back southeast. I was charged only 25¢ for the transfer.

Hi All,

Despite all my transit fan skills and talents, I wasn’t able to find the following information regarding PACE-CTA transfers. I thought this thread might be a good place to ask it:

Is there any transfer fare available between PACE and CTA when someone is using a 1-day pass on CTA? I plan to take the PACE bus from Elk Grove Village to Rosemont, then ride the L trains all day, and return to Elk Grove the same way. Would I need to pay a regular single fare for each of the PACE bus trips, or would I get any discount? I do have a Ventra card from my previous visit.

Thanks.

If you are using a 1,3, or 7 day CTA pass there is no Pace transfer discount. 

If you pay using the Ventra stored value, transfers work between CTA and Pace. If you are planning to just do a CTA+Pace trip and return, it may be cheaper to just use stored value. If you are planning more extensive CTA use, I'd recommend going with the 1-day pass and paying the extra fare for the Pace buses you need to take.
