Some CTA and Pace riders with the new Ventra card can start using them Monday.

It's part of the month-long rollout of the new fare card.

Students will receive their Ventra transit cards during school orientation, prior to the start of the new school year later in August.

Everyone else can start using Ventra on September 9.
