CHICAGO — More Chicagoans are electing to use the region’s Ventra mobile app for purchasing rail transit fares. Metra officials recently announced the app has surpassed two million downloads in less than two years after its launch. Customers have purchased nearly $250 million in fares in that time period.

Metra, the Chicago Transit Authority, and Pace use the Ventra transit app.

The application allows customers to pay for rides on multiple transit systems from one platform. The free app was developed and launched by the Chicago Transit Authority in partnership with Metra and Pace, the city’s suburban bus system.

In addition to purchasing transit fares, users can also load money onto their Ventra accounts, manage account features, and receive real-time transit information.
