The CTA has finally completed its transition to the new Ventra card fare system.

Starting Tuesday, passengers can no longer use the old magnetic-strip cards. If you do not have a Ventra card you’ll have to use cash or a “contactless” credit or debit card.

Riders can transfer existing balances on their old fare cards to “Ventra” until September 1st.
