For the third year in a row, a concert ticket for the music venue will cover your travel costs on the Metra Union Pacific North Line.

According to Metra, all concertgoers need to do is show the conductor their ticket or e-ticket and their rides to and from Ravinia Music Festival are free.

“This partnership is just one more way we can serve our customers,” said Metra CEO/Executive Director Jim Derwinski.

Metra said it will increase the number of trains stopping at the Ravinia gates for weekend shows starting June 17.
