My friend Mark just sent me this note and I thought I would pass it along…
As you likely know, the Illinois legislature recently passed a transit funding bill that includes free rides for seniors on the CTA and RTA.
Any senior (65 and older) wishing to ride for free is required to enroll by no later than March 17th!
Seniors can enroll by calling the Senior Helpline at 1-800-252-8966 or by going online at www.illinois.gov/transit.
I just wanted to make sure that everybody is aware of this information so that those entitled can take advantage of this senior benefit.
