The CTA and Pace have a new fare payment system passengers can use on both agencies' buses or trains.

It's called Ventra. Officials say it will make it easier for commuters to pay for rides.

New Ventra fare machines will be installed at rail stations along with new equipment on buses and at turnstiles.

However, the new system will not be used until pilot testing is completed in the spring.
