Cook County targets January 2021 launch for Fair Transit South Cook pilot project

Cook County in Illinois will advance the Fair Transit South Cook, a three-year pilot project, to improve transit service and lower commuter rail fares for south suburban county residents, as well as those residing on Chicago’s south side.

The Fair Transit South Cook project will provide lower Metra fares on the Metra Electric and Rock Island lines and new service options for Pace bus service to increase use of transit for residents and essential workers.

The goal is to launch the program in January 2021 with a 50-percent reduction in Metra fares, which the county says can be implemented immediately as it does not require a change to the commuter rail service’s fare structure…Please click here to read Mischa Wanek-Libman’s story in Mass Transit Magazine.
