CTA, Pace customers can transfer balances to Ventra

In an effort to help CTA and Pace customers transition to the new Ventra fare payment system, the agencies are providing a list locations that will allow transit customers to transfer balances from old fare cards to new Ventra Cards.

At neighborhood events across the city and suburbs, CTA and Pace customers can transfer stored transit value from eligible magnetic-stripe cards and Chicago Cards to new registered Ventra Cards, which will be provided at no cost. Customers may bring a maximum of five eligible fare media cards at a time with a combined minimum of $5 in transit value.

Ventra will replace all CTA and Pace existing fare media by Dec. 15, 2013.

Customers who visit the balance transfer events will be asked to fill out a Ventra registration form.

Registration forms are available online at: www.ventrachicago.com

    So, can people who received their new Ventra Cards in the mail, but never received their account activation username and password bring their cards to these events? The phrase "new registered Ventra Cards" above doesn't make that clear. It sounds like they will just be issuing new Ventra cards from vending machines and then transferring existing value to them.
