UIC Transit Benefit

CTA users must have a Ventra card prior to enrolling in the Transit Benefit program.  If you are new to the Transit benefit program and will be using the CTA/Ventra card, please complete the following steps as soon as possible, so that the information will reach Ventra in time for the reload. 

  1. Purchase a new Ventra Card (Walgreens, CVS, Jewel).
  2. Register and activate it on-line.
  3. Send an email to your Transit Benefit Administrator at transitbenefit@uic.edu and provide the following information:
    • UIN
    • Transit Account I.D. (12-digit number found online when you login - this number begins with "1100...")
    • Deduction Amount
