CTA drivers and staff will assist customers with questions regarding fare payment. Customers are being advised not swipe or insert their fare cards during the penny ride period. No refunds will be issued if a full fare is deducted from a fare card during the penny ride period. CTA President Forrest Claypool says on average 150,000 rides are taken on New Year's Eve, noting it's the "safest, most convenient and by far the most affordable transportation option."
