The CTA is waiving the $5 fee for those who make the switch to the new Ventra card.

The CTA said replacements are being made for existing CTA and Pace transit cards.

CTA customers will immediately be refunded for the fee, and will be able to apply the refund to a fare.

Ventra cards can be purchased online at train stations and at more than 2,000 retail locations.
