Ventra Card Expiration Information Message:
 

The first Student Ventra Cards to be issued since Ventra launched in 2013 are nearing expiration, and we need your help in getting the word out to students who are currently enrolled and/or will continued to be enrolled at your school:

1.     Students should check their Student Ventra Card’s expiration date, located on the front of the Student Ventra Card.

2.     Direct the student to VentraChicago.com/students, where they can download an Expiring Cards Replacement Order Form to purchase a new replacement card.

Their new card will be sent to your school for their pickup, just as in the normal replacement card process. If the student has a balance of unused funds and/or unused unlimited ride passes, and their card is registered, it’s simple to transfer those to their new Student Ventra Card by calling Ventra Customer Service at (877) 669-8368 or visiting the Ventra Customer Service Center at 567 W. Lake St. between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. 

If a student is graduating or otherwise not continuing to be enrolled at your school, they will need to purchase a regular full-fare Ventra Card, which can be purchased at Ventra vending machines at CTA rail stations, online at VentraChicago.com, at more than 1,000 retail locations, the Ventra Customer Service Center, or by calling Ventra at (877) 669-8368.
