Metra to stop selling monthly passes, 10-ride tickets at 15 stations. See story here. http://wgntv.com/2018/06/14/metra-to-stop-selling-monthly-passes-10-ride-tickets-at-15-stations/
Starting June 20, Metra will no longer sell monthly passes or 10-ride tickets at its 15 non-downtown stations on the Electric Line.
The move comes after Metra reported losses following a series of fraudulent charges at ticket vending machines. Scammers are using stolen credit cards, officials said, causing Metra to lose “legitimate sales.”
The impacted stations have no ticket agents; customers rely solely on vending machines.
According to Metra, customers can still buy one-way tickets at the machines to get downtown.
