Crain's: CTA sets complex schedule for Ventra card

I wrote about this over the weekend and now we know more about the rollout for Ventra. If you attend a Chicago-area university and CPS you will recieve a Ventra card first in the form of the CTA U-Pass, however, if you possess a Chicago Card or Chicago Card Plus will be the next group.

If you continue to use those old style transit cards and passes (or magnetic strip cards, such as the 1day, 3day, 7day or 30day passes), they won't be accepted by December although any value left on the cards can be transferred to a Ventra card by March of next year.
