Free rides on CTA for New Year's Eve

If only I had somewhere to be on New Year's to take advantage of this from CTA. Here's hoping you're ringing in New Years' safely especially if you're going somewhere to party.

From NBC Chicago:
New Year’s Eve revelers will once again be able to get home safely, and cheaply, thanks to the Chicago Transit Authority.

Beginning at 10 p.m. New Year’s Eve, all CTA buses and trains will be free to ride for all riders as part of a sponsorship deal with Miller Lite beer.

Customers will not have to touch their Ventra cards to take advantage of the free rides, and will be able to ride until 4 a.m. without cost.
And this is kind of harsh
Customers that touch their Ventra cards to turnstiles or on buses will not be eligible for refunds, the agency cautions.
Well if you read this blog, you know now don't tap your Ventra cards. And don't give any money to anyone who will tap you onto a train or bus because at least from 10:00 PM to 4:00 AM on New Years Eve you will ride for free on CTA. There's no need for that new emerging hustle on that holiday...

BTW, here's an ig post from CTA about this, at least now we have something visual about the free rides on New Years Eve. Just remember don't accept any hustler who will tap you onto a train or bus for a small fee on New Years Eve from 10 PM to 4 AM.
