Apple Pay and Ventra

Postby danib62 » Mon Feb 15, 2016 5:55 pm

I took a trip to Chicago and tried using Apple Pay at a ventra machine instead of buying a card. Not a single machine I tried accepted my iphone (at multiple stations) and I ended up having to buy a card. Has anyone successfully used Apple Pay with ventra (or any smartphone)?

Ventra has been nothing but a giant pain in the ass for me. Nothing works right.

That seems to be the prevailing opinion... Seems great in theory but it's had horrible implementation...
