CTA waiving $5 Ventra card fee for rest of 2013

If you plan to use the new Ventra cards to ride the CTA, you’re getting a little financial break.

From now through the end of the year, the agency is waiving the $5 fee for the transit card.

But you have to get it online, or by calling or visiting the Ventra office.

Chicago card customers will begin to transition to Ventra starting in the middle of next month.

Riders are advised to spend down the value on their existing fare cards but balances can be transferred to the new Ventra system.

    I'm laughing at the "waiver". It still costs $5 to get the card. It's just a matter of semantics. The original $5 fee(which became $5 of card value) is waived, but to get the card now, you must add $5 of card value. Of course, they have to have your personal information. This should be opt-in only. They don't need to be collecting any data. The CTA is a joke.
