On Wednesday, the Chicago Transit Authority said it has updated the Ventra fare card system after some students reported problems with their cards.

Some students said their card showed a zero balance even after they loaded money into the cards.

The CTA says the glitch was caused on the first day because there were so many people downloading at the same time.

Students got their Ventra cards early.

The full Ventra rollout is scheduled to start September 9.
