Ventra: The Must-Have App for Chicago Transit
January 26, 2016
Guest Blogger: Deidre McLeod, Executive Support, Cubic Transportation Systems
As a native Chicagoan, it still impresses me to be a part of the second-largest public transportation system in the United States. The majority of those living in the Chicagoland area learned a long time ago that public transportation is the more affordable and least stressful way to travel. The Ventra app provides a convenient new tool for a traveling public that wants smart apps to simplify fare payment.

Guest Blogger: Larry Yermack, Strategic Advisor, Cubic Transportation Systems
America received an unexpected present from the U.S. Congress when it recently passed a fully funded five-year, $305 billion transportation infrastructure bill. Congress managed to get beyond the most conservative positions to creatively use funding sources other than the federal gas tax to get the program paid for, which will repair and expand roads, bridges and transit.
