Chicago Transit Authority President Forrest Claypool said on Monday that the new Ventra transit payment system will roll out as scheduled in August, but CTA has still not picked a specific date for introduction of the scanned card that will replace the Chicago Card and Chicago Card Plus and can be used as a debit card.

Claypool’s remarks came after a CTA board meeting where members signed off on a five-year agreement with the Chicago Board of Education to provide Ventra cards as student fare payment cards to high school students.
