11. Is there a limit in the number of times I can move my Ventra Card from iPhone to iPhone or iPhone to Apple Watch?

Yes. Each Ventra Card in Apple Wallet can be moved between devices (iPhone to Apple Watch or from one iPhone to another iPhone) with the same iCloud account up to five times in a year. If you need to move your Ventra Card in Apple Wallet after you’ve reached this limit for the year, call Ventra Customer Service at 1.877.NOW.VENTRA (1.877.669.8368) who can help.

12. Am I able to share my Ventra Card in Apple Wallet across multiple iCloud accounts?

A Ventra Card in Apple Wallet can only be associated with a single iCloud account and cannot be shared across multiple devices.

13. Can I still use my plastic Ventra Card after converting the card to a Ventra Card on iPhone or Apple Watch?

No. Once a plastic Ventra Card is converted to a Ventra Card on iPhone or Apple Watch, the plastic Ventra Card is deactivated; it’s the same process as getting a brand new debit card from your bank, your balance is still available in the new card, but you can no longer use the old card. Customers should dispose of the plastic card once the card is converted to a Ventra Card on iPhone or Apple Watch. The plastic Ventra Card will no longer be able to have passes or value added to it or be used to ride transit.

14. Will my Ventra Card on iPhone or Apple Watch have the same card number as my plastic Ventra Card?

No. Once you add a Ventra Card to Apple Wallet, it will be assigned a new card number. It will retain the same Transit ID, however, so it will not affect any settings you have currently enabled with the Ventra Card (Autoload, Transit Benefits, etc.).

15. How many Ventra Cards can I add to my iPhone or Apple Watch?

You can have up to five Ventra cards on any single iPhone or Apple Watch. The total number of cards (including credit, debit and transit cards like Ventra Cards) that can be added to Apple Wallet varies by device model.

16. How do I remove my Ventra Card from my iPhone or Apple Watch?

Once a Ventra Card is removed from Apple Wallet, it’s automatically deactivated and cannot be used until it’s added to Apple Wallet again (either on the same device or a new device). The Card will appear as grey in the Ventra app. Please note that removing a Ventra Card from your iPhone or Apple Watch does not remove the card from the Ventra App.

If you no longer want to use your Ventra Card on iPhone or Apple Watch, and want to move back to using a plastic Ventra card, please call Ventra Customer Service for assistance at 1.877.NOW.VENTRA (1.877.669.8368)..

For help, call Ventra Customer Service at 1.877.NOW.VENTRA (1.877.669.8368).

18. I just got a new iPhone; how do I add my Ventra card to my new iPhone?

It’s easy to do this using the Ventra app. Note that to do this, however, the new iPhone must be signed into the same iCloud account as your old device.

  • On the new phone, download the Ventra app and log in with the same Ventra online account used with your card before.
  • Go to the Cards section of the Ventra app and locate the Ventra Card that was on your old iPhone. A message will be displayed "Ventra Card on another device" (or if removed from your previous iPhone through your iCloud account, such as if your iPhone was lost, “Ventra Card not on any device”) just above the card’s nickname.
  • Tap Add to Apple Wallet for the Ventra Card you wish to add to your new iPhone.
  • If the Ventra Card is still associated with your old iPhone, you’ll be prompted to acknowledge this action will remove the Ventra Card from the old iPhone.

The Ventra app does not allow you to edit Ventra Card nicknames, but you can log in using the same Ventra online account at www.ventrachicago.com and edit the nickname there. It will be updated in the Ventra app once refreshed.

 

Tap to Pay with Ventra Card on iPhone or Apple Watch

 

20. How do I add Transit Value or CTA/Pace passes to my Ventra Card on iPhone or Apple Watch?

Transit value and passes for CTA and Pace can be added to your Ventra Card on iPhone or Apple Watch just like with a regular plastic Ventra Card using the Ventra app.

21. Are the same passes and transit value options available for Ventra Card in Apple Wallet?

Yes! Ventra Card on iPhone or Apple Watch offers the same fare options including riding with transit value, all regular pass options, and the ability to pay for up to six others traveling with you. You can even have pre-tax transit benefit value or passes added to your account through your employer.

Note that only regular Ventra Cards (and the fare options that come with them) are able to be added to Apple Wallet—special fare cards, such as RTA Reduced Fare, UPass Cards, or Student Reduced Fare cards cannot be added to iPhone or Apple Watch, at this time.

22. Is there a minimum transit value or pass needed to add Ventra Card to Apple Wallet?

You can convert eligible, plastic Ventra Cards with any value or pass product in the account (even if the card has no balance) to a Ventra Card in Apple Wallet. (Free and Reduced Fare program cards cannot be added to Apple Wallet at this time.)

If you don’t have a plastic Ventra Card and want to create a new Ventra Card on iPhone or Apple Watch, you’ll need to start off with at least $5 in transit value or a CTA and Pace pass.

23. Which payment options are available to add passes and transit value to my Ventra Card on iPhone or Apple Watch? / Am I required to use Apple Pay as a funding source to load fare to a Ventra Card in Apple Wallet?

You can use all payment options available in the Ventra app, on the Ventra website or at a Ventra Vending Machine to add value to your Ventra Card, including cards in Apple Pay (as a funding source)

Autoload is available as an option, too—though like with plastic Ventra Cards, you’ll need to set up autoload in the Ventra system using a credit or debit card in the Ventra app or your Ventra online account.

24. Can I use Transit Benefits to add passes and transit value to my Ventra Card on iPhone or Apple Watch?

Yes, a Ventra Card on iPhone or Apple Watch can be loaded with transit benefit value or passes, just like a plastic Ventra Card. If you’re converting an existing plastic Ventra Card to a Ventra Card on iPhone or Apple Watch, your transit benefits will be available and continue to be loaded as before since your card’s Transit ID will remain the same.

If you’re setting up transit benefits with your employer for the first time, they may need your card’s Transit ID to set up direct loading of fare into your card’s account or otherwise offer a prepaid transit debit card to use as a funding source in the app like you would any other credit card.

25. Can I use Ventra Vending Machines at CTA and Pace locations to add transit value or pass using cash to my Ventra Card on iPhone or Apple Watch?

Yes! You must authenticate in order to add transit value or pass using cash at a Ventra Vending Machine.

When ready to pay for a ride at a Ventra reader with Ventra Card on iPhone simply tap your iPhone face up to the Ventra reader’s yellow target.

If Express Transit Mode is enabled for your Ventra Card, you won’t need to wake your phone.

If Express Transit Mode is NOT enabled you’ll need to wake up your iPhone by double-clicking the home or side button and ensure your Ventra Card is the card that’ll be presented at the reader.

33. I have a payment card enabled for Express Transit; can I still enable Express Transit on my Ventra card in Apple Wallet?

Yes, you can have payment cards or transit cards for other agencies enabled as Express Transit cards; these will not be activated at Ventra Readers if a Ventra Card is enabled with Express Transit. Note that you can only set one Ventra Card as your Express Transit card, however.

34. Does identifying my Ventra Card as the “default card” in the Ventra app enable Express Transit on this same card in Apple Wallet?

No—this is a separate setting. The “default card” setting in the Ventra app controls which card shows up first in your card carousel and does not enable Express Transit for that Ventra card. To enable Express Transit on your Ventra Card, you will do this in your device’s settings:

On iPhone:

35. What happens if my iPhone dies and I have a Ventra Card in my Apple Wallet?

Not to worry. With Express Transit cards, you can use power reserve to quickly pay for rides. On your compatible iPhone with the latest iOS version, power reserve is available for up to five hours when your iPhone needs to be charged.

To see if Express Transit cards are available when your iPhone needs to be charged, press the side button. Doing this often may significantly reduce the power reserve for Express Transit cards. If you choose to power off your iPhone, this feature will not be available.

Learn more about Express Transit here.

NOTE: You can use Express Transit cards with power reserve with iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, or later. If you have an older iPhone, lose your phone or your battery is too depleted, Ventra readers also accept widely common contactless bankcards for Pay-as-you-go (PAYG) fares.

 

Troubleshooting

 

36. I tried using my Ventra Card on my iPhone at a Ventra reader and it is not working. What should I do?

Confirm you are holding your iPhone or Apple Watch correctly.

  • For iPhone: When you pay at a Ventra reader with a Ventra Card on iPhone hold the top half of your iPhone face-up on the yellow target. You will see “Done” and a checkmark on the iPhone.
  • For Apple Watch: when you pay at a Ventra reader with a Ventra Card on Apple Watch hold the display of your Apple Watch just above the yellow target of the Ventra reader until you feel a vibration. You’ll see “Done” and a checkmark on the Watch display.

Tip: Also confirm if you have Express Transit enabled.

  • If Express Transit is enabled, simply hold the top half of your iPhone face-up on the yellow target of the Ventra Reader. Your iPhone will present the card you've selected as your default Transit Card and the appropriate fare will be deducted.
  • If Express Transit is not enabled, prior to approaching the reader launch Apple Wallet and select the Ventra Card you want to use. Pre-arm the wallet by double-clicking the side button or home button depending on your device type (and make sure your Ventra Card is the card being presented for payment), and when ready hold the top half of your iPhone face-up on the yellow target of the Ventra Reader.

Note that Ventra readers can accept any standard contactless payment method for fares, such as contactless bankcards or credit or debit cards in Apple Pay. Be sure that Express Transit Mode is enabled on your preferred Ventra Card or otherwise that the correct card is being presented when you touch your iPhone or Apple Watch to a Ventra reader, or a pay-as-you-go (PAYG) fare might be charged to a credit card, for example.

37. Why was my credit card charged for my transit ride instead of my Ventra Card on my iPhone or Apple Watch?

You may have experienced card clash. Card clash occurs when two contactless payment cards- such as Ventra Card on iPhone and a common contactless bank card - are presented at a Ventra Reader at the same time. The Ventra reader won’t know which of the two cards to charge and will simply charge the first valid payment card that it sees. Please be sure to only touch the card or iPhone you wish to pay with to the reader and keep your iPhone or Apple Watch separate from any payment cards when paying, including a credit card with the contactless “wave” symbol stored in your iPhone’s protective sleeve.

If you need additional assistance, call Ventra Customer Service at 1.877.NOW.VENTRA (1.877.669.8368).

38. What should I do if the wrong card was charged for my transit ride?

For help, please contact Ventra Customer Service at 1.877.NOW.VENTRA (1.877.669.8368).

Only present the payment method you wish to pay with at the Ventra reader. Also, check your settings to ensure your Ventra Card on iPhone or Apple Watch is set up with Express Transit Mode for easiest payment using your iPhone or Apple Watch.

39. How do I access my Ventra Card if my iPhone is lost or stolen?

The process is easy to move a Ventra Card to a new iPhone or re-activate your Ventra Card when you find your iPhone or Apple Watch.

If your iPhone has been found:

  • Enter your passcode.
  • Log into your iCloud account.

If you get a new iPhone:

  • On the new iPhone, download the Ventra app and log in the same Ventra online account you used on your old iPhone.
  • Tap the Cards section of the Ventra app, and then review your current Ventra cards on iPhone or Apple Watch. For Ventra Cards on your old iPhone, the Ventra app will say "Ventra Card on another device" below you Ventra card(s).
  • Tap Add to Apple Wallet for the Ventra Card(s) you wish to add to your new IPhone.
  • If your Ventra Card is still loaded on your old iPhone, you’ll be prompted to acknowledge that this action will remove the Ventra card from the other iPhone.
  • Follow the prompts on the screen to complete the process.
  • Then tap Express Transit Card, then select Ventra Card to enable Express Transit.

40. Can I temporarily suspend my Ventra Card if I can’t find my iPhone or it’s stolen?

If your iPhone is lost or stolen, you can follow these steps to temporarily suspend use of your device:

  • Go to iCloud.com and log in with your Apple ID
  • Select Find My iPhone, then choose All Devices
  • Select your device, then select Lost Mode

When you select Lost Mode, your iPhone cannot be used to ride CTA or Pace or make any transactions with Apple Pay.

  • On the new iPhone, download the Ventra app and log in with the same Ventra online account used with your Ventra Card before.
  • Go to the Cards section of the Ventra app and find the card that was on your other iPhone. You will see "Ventra Card on another device" (or if removed from your previous iPhone through your iCloud account, such as if your iPhone was lost, “Ventra Card not on any device”) just above the card’s nickname.
  • Tap Add to Apple Wallet for the Ventra Card you wish to add to your iPhone’s wallet.
  • If the card is still associated with another iPhone, you’ll be prompted to acknowledge that this action will remove the card from the other iPhone.
  • Follow the prompts on the screen to complete the process.

43. Why is my Ventra Card grey in the Ventra app?

A grey Ventra Card means that it has been removed from Apple Wallet on an iPhone or Apple Watch. The card is deactivated and cannot be used until it’s added to Apple Wallet again (either on the same iPhone or a new iPhone).
