CHICAGO — The CTA will offer free service for New Year’s Eve late Saturday.

The city is encouraging all revelers to take public transportation for the holiday, as it is the “most affordable, convenient and environmentally friendly way” to travel, according to a news release.

As part of that, the CTA will offer free bus and “L” rides 10 p.m. Saturday-4 a.m. Sunday, according to the city’s Office of Emergency Management and Communications. Travelers will not need to tap their Ventra card or pay in any other way to get onto buses or into “L” stations.

There will be normal CTA service Sunday. Check the CTA’s website for more information.
