CTA/Pace Bus Ventra Cards

The district does not offer bus service, other than for some students in special education. Several PACE buses provide service near OPRFHS, including the 309 (Lake Street), 313 (Lake Street), and 315 (Ridgeland Avenue).

Students can get a discounted-fare bus/train pass called Ventra student fare cards, which PACE and CTA both accept. You must apply for a Ventra student fare card by mail. Log into the Ventra website, print out the application for a new or replacement student permit, include the school’s address, mail it to Ventra with a $2 personal check, money order, or cashier’s check. Do not send cash, and do not bring cash to the Bookstore. The student card will then be mailed to the Bookstore and you will be notified when it arrives, in approximately two-three weeks. While the reduced student fare generally is good on school days during school hours, please refer to the Ventra website for specifics about the fare restrictions.

Please check this document to see if your Ventra card has arrived. You must be logged into your OPRFHS account to view the list. If your name is on the list, come to the bookstore to pick up your card.

Note: You must Ventra cards for each summer term, and again each fall of the new year. Fill out the Renew Student Reduced Fare Riding Privileges form for that time period, which can be picked up from the Bookstore or printed from the Ventra website here. Return to Ventra by email, fax, or mail. Be sure to register your student’s card on the Ventra website. If your card is lost or stolen, you will need to use the replacement form and call Ventra with the card’s number to deactivate the lost or stolen card.
