Ventra tranistion almost complete
The transition to the new Ventra fare-collection system for CTA and Pace riders is nearly complete.
Starting May 1st, customers can no longer buy magnetic stripe cards. They also won’t be able to reload a Chicago Card or a Chicago Card Plus.
And starting July 1st, the old cards won’t be accepted at all. Pace customers paying with cash will also no longer be issued a transfer card.
