One is all you need; New Ventra App features all three transit systems

The Ventra App is the first ever to allow customers to pay for rides on all three transit systems with a few taps on their mobile devices, transforming the way Chicagoans take transit each day. The free app, which was developed jointly by CTA, Metra and Pace, will provide a "one-stop shopping" experience that essentially puts a Ventra vending machine as well as a Metra ticket vending machine in customers' pockets. The app will be available for use on Apple and Android smartphone and tablet devices via the App Store and Google Play.

The Ventra App will offer our customers a wide range of functionality never before available on their phones, including mobile tickets for Metra, Ventra account management, loading of transit value/passes, and real-time transit tracker information for CTA, Metra and Pace. Customers will be able to use Ventra account funds, pre-tax transit benefits provided by employers, and/or credit and debit cards to purchase transit to ride CTA, Metra and Pace.
