Ventra is an application for Android that gives you the opportunity to purchase tickets for public transport online and use other helpful tools.
How it works
This app is developed for people who live in Chicago by the local transit authority. You can use it only if you live in this city in the United States of America.
The utility gives you the ability to manage your transit account. You are able to see detailed information about the available balance and top it up. The application also sends you a notification when there is no money on your account.
Moreover, it is possible to purchase digital tickets for the subway of Chicago. You can also use them by showing the screen of your smartphone while going to the train.
Ventra not only allows you to pay for transportation but to navigate in the city. There is the opportunity to find the best route to a certain location and check out if it is better to take a bus or subway. This function reminds of such apps as TransLoc as well as its analogues.
