Pass/Ticket Sales Locations

Ventrais the fare payment system for Pace and the CTA. Riders are encouraged to get a Ventra Card and register a transit account at or by calling 1.877.NOW.VENTRA. Registered Ventra Card users can load multi-day passes and transit value to their card, and have their balance protected if the card is lost or stolen.

There are hundreds of suburban retail locations where customers can obtain Ventra Cards or reload value or passes to their accounts.  To find your nearest Ventra retailer, visit the Ventra retailer look-up web page and enter your ZIP code, or look for the machine at any CTA "EL" Station, at Ogilvie Transportation Center, at Union Station, or at several Pace Facilities.

Riders with smartphones can now use the Ventra app--which has all the functionality of the vending machine, but fits right in your pocket! Pace, CTA and Metra worked together on development of the Ventra App, which allows customers to buy passes, add transit value and manage their Ventra account, as well as purchase and display mobile Metra passes and tickets using Ventra transit value and/or bankcards.

ADA Paratransit tickets are not yet sold through Ventra. They are available at Pace′s online store or at the retailers below. For additional information about how to pay for rides on Pace, call Pace′s Passenger Services at 847-364-PACE.
