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.
