CTA Ventra Card Program

The CTA Ventra Card Program provides students unlimited rides on any CTA bus or train during the academic term. The cost is $163 for all students taking at 9 or more credits during the fall and spring semesters, and $75 for all students taking 3 or more credits during the summer semester.

CTA Ventra passes are valid from the first day of the regular class session until the final day of final exams. Should you want to use your CTA Ventra pass during breaks between semesters you are responsible for adding the appropriate funding to your card. Once the first day of the current semester's classes begins your CTA Ventra card will become unlimited usage again.

Your security ID photo will be used to order a CTA Ventra card for you. Cards are distributed approximately 2-3 days later. Your CTA Ventra card is valid for 4 years, and the same card will be used the entire time you are a student at UIC John Marshall Law School. If you are unable to meet with the CTA Ventra Card Program staff during orientation, you can order a CTA Ventra card through a security supervisor at the 3rd Floor Security Office (315 S. Plymouth Court Building).

If your CTA Ventra card is lost or stolen you will need to bring your student ID and $50 (check or cash) to the 3rd Floor Security Office (315 S. Plymouth Court Building). Hours are 7 a.m.-11 p.m.
