There's a lot going on in Chicago over the Christmas and New Year's holiday. Why not take the family on Metra for a holiday excursion while Metra is offering free rides to kids 11 and under with each fare paying adult? It's the perfect way to create memories.

Metra offers tips for traveling with family
Starting today, each fare-paying adult can bring up to three kids 11 and under for free on every Metra train through Jan. 3, 2016. Families traveling on a Saturday or Sunday can purchase an $8 Weekend Pass and travel with their kids for free all weekend long.
