Some federal employees are receiving free rides by using their ID cards, the CTA says.

The CTA says that these ID cards, issued by the Environmental Protection Agency, have the same type of chip as the Ventra Cards.

Cubic, which owns the current Ventra system, is in the process of fixing the situation.

The CTA says that Ventra will be reimbursed.
