Check your Chicago Card expiration date -- 60,000 to expire this year
The CTA warns those who bought their Chicago Card or Chicago Card Plus four years ago that the card will expire this year. There are almost 60,000 cards that will expire beginning in April and through the end of the year.
Riders who registered their Chicago Card and Chicago Card Plus users will be notified by email. But customers with unregistered Chicago Cards will need to check the expiration date of their card using one of the following methods:
Riders can check expiration dates:
- At the passenger information units in most CTA rail stations.
- By calling 1-888-YOUR-CTA (1-888-968-7282), Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. till 8 p.m.
- Or by visiting the CTA Sales Center, 567 W. Lake St., 8 a.m. till 4:30 p.m.

And by the way, if you really have a Chicago Card or Chicago Card Plus that is four years old and it still works, you must write to me
. Because I want to know how you have managed to keep it in such pristine condition. It seems like I have to replace mine every year or so. I think the longest I've had a card without it getting damaged and rendered in operable was almost two year.
