Ventra U-Pass


The Ventra U-Pass is a discounted transit fare card which offers full-time students unlimited rides aboard all Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) buses and trains during the fall and spring semesters. The Ventra U-Pass does not require a transfer or surcharge and allows daily ridership, including weekends. Only full-time students are eligible for the Ventra U-Pass, and the card cost is included in the $132 Ventra U-Pass Fee charged to full-time student accounts during the fall and spring semesters.   Visit colum.edu/upass for distribution information.

Students can visit the Campus Card Office to receive help replacing lost or stolen cards. There is a $50 fee for replacing lost cards, so students must make sure not to lose or damage their cards if possible.
