Ventra is replacing the transit agencies' nearly 20-year-old payment system and is being phased in over the fall.
Officials say Ventra cards now account for about a third of all CTA and Pace rides and say 900,000 new Ventra accounts have been created.
Ventra will ultimately replace all CTA and Pace fare cards by Dec. 15.
