Ventra for kids

What does the switch to Ventra mean for students? There is now just one card, streamlining ridership, but does that mean more fees? What happens with kids who don’t have a parent loading money on the card? Low-income? Homeless? What happens to the “free ride” pilot programs used in the past? We'll hear from Laurene Heybach, director of The Law Project of The Chicago Coalition for the Homeless and a representative from the CTA. We'll also get 1st day attendance figures from CPS.
