Captured in Fare Equipment
On the bus... When the U-Pass is mistakenly
inserted into the bus dollar slot, it is the student's responsibility
to complete a captured fare report from the bus operator.
Students bring the report along with a valid student ID
to the CTA general offices. Students do not receive a temporary
card; however, a transfer is provided.
At the rail station... After the U-Pass is captured
at the station, students are to locate the customer assistant
to complete a captured fare report and receive a free transit
card to complete the ride. The student then brings the completed
report and valid student ID to the CTA general offices to
request a new U-Pass. CTA will provide a temporary transit
card and a replacement U-Pass will be issued to the school.
If a student fails to get a report, it may take up to two
weeks to replace the U-Pass. Should this happen, students
must call 1-888-YOUR-CTA to track down their report to timely
receive a new U-Pass.

bus operator will allow the student to complete the ride
for free; however, the student must bring the defective,
damaged, or demagnetized U-Pass along with a valid student
ID to the CTA general offices to request a replacement.
