CTA Celebrates Crosstown Classic

New farecards go out today

    The new CTA farecard celebrates the Cubs-Sox Rivalry.

    Rather than deal with the hassles of parking and traffic, using public transportation is arguably the best way to get to either Wrigley Field or U.S. Cellular Field on a game day.

    Starting today, Chicago will share your baseball pride via the CTA's farecards.

    The agency is unveiling special farecards designed by artist Steve Musgrave, who also designed the murals located in the Red Line Addison station. The new cards feature a baseball player wearing both Cubby Blue and White Sox Black.

    Vending machines in all CTA rail stations will begin distributing the limited edition farecards today, though they will likely be most popular during the Crosstown Series (June 16-18, 26-28).

    The commemorative farecards will be available while supplies last.

    Of course, bragging rights for fans of the winning team are still free and always in stock.

    Matt Bartosik, editor of Off the Rocks' next issue, often deals with fans from both sides of the Red Line.
