MORGAN PARK — Metra is offering unlimited, two-day train passes to Lollapalooza.

The music festival runs Aug. 3-6 in Grant Park. The two-day pass for Aug. 3 and 4 is valid after 9:30 a.m. and costs $10. A weekend pass is good all day Aug 5 and 6 and costs $8.

The passes are now on sale at all ticket windows, including all Downtown and outlying stations as well as on the Ventra App.

“This is the fourth year we’ve partnered with Lollapalooza to help bring tens of thousands of festivalgoers to downtown Chicago,” said Don Orseno, Metra's executive director and chief executive officer.

Metra also announced Monday a contest to win two four-day tickets to Lollapalooza. To enter, submit a photo or video on Instagram showing the contestant with Metra tickets or a Metra schedule at a train station or on board the train.

The Instagram submissions must also include a caption describing how the contestant used Metra and have the hashtag #Metra2Lolla. Contestants must also follow Metra on Instagram (@metrarail).

The contest ends at 11:59 p.m. July 21 and winners will be notified via direct message by July 28.

“With five downtown train stations within walking distance of Grant Park, Metra is a great travel option. Our goal is to make sure everyone gets to and from the festival safely,” Orseno said.
