UIC Transit Benefit

Enrollment for the UIC Transit Benefit Program has closed, and the program will end on March 30, 2019.

While you can opt out of the program at any time, the last distribution or reloading of transit cards/passes will be March 29, 2019. After that date, you will have to purchase your transit passes directly from the transportation provider. If you have any questions, see the UIC Transit Benefit page or email transitbenefit@uic.edu.

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
