Thousands Of CTA Chicago Cards Set To Expire

2010_03_22_CTAcard.jpg All of the love-hate relationship with the CTA aside, around 60,000 transit cards are set to expire beginning in April and an additional 28,000 will expire over the summer. If you have a registered Chicago Card Plus or a registered regular Chicago Card, you will get an e-mail about how to replace your current transit card for a new one. Upon receiving a notification e-mail, you will be instructed as to how to get a replacement card through mail. If you have a regular Chicago Card but have not registered it, you can still check to see when your card is set to expire to replace your card on time. You can check to see when your card expires either online, at an El station, calling the CTA, or visiting them in person downtown. You can renew and obtain new cards using any of those four methods as well. Regardless of whether you have a regular card or a plus card, the only catch is that you need to replace your card within 45 days of its expiration date so renew as early as possible.
