The U-Pass is a discount fare card allowing unlimited rides on all CTA buses and trains.). The CTA uses the Ventra card, which you will keep until you graduate. The cards require activation; instructions will be provided when you pick up your card. You will also be able to use the card during breaks from school by adding money to the card. Due to restrictions imposed by the CTA, the program is not currently available to evening students or part-time day students. For more details, visit the CTA's U-Pass website.
