IL: CTA Statement on ATU Local 308 President Robert Kelly's Ongoing Campaign of Lies About Ventra

Once again, Kelly is spreading misinformation and outright lies, without bothering to learn the facts.

Here are the facts: The CTA does not lose any money when a customer boards trains or buses with a Ventra card that has a negative balance. The CTA is paid fully and immediately for each trip taken. Cubic bears all risk for any customer with a negative balance – CTA is not responsible in any way.
