The CTA board will vote Wednesday on its proposed budget for next year.

A board spokesperson stresses the budget includes no fare hikes or services cuts for 2014.

However, problems with the new Ventra fare card system are overshadowing budget talks.

Frustrated riders vented their concerns at an open meeting Tuesday night and are expected at Wednesday’s meeting.

Officials say the CTA is addressing the glitches plaguing a small percentage of  riders but that the majority of Ventra users are not having problems.
