A significant deadline in the transition to the Ventra system is looming for CTA and Pace users.

Starting Thursday, the CTA will no longer sell magnetic stripe fare cards. Also, users will no longer be able to autoload or reload their Chicago Card or Chicago Card Plus. The full transition to Ventra is set for July 1.
