Since I’m moving to San Francisco in 6 days, this is becoming less and less useful to me. If anyone is interested in buying it for less than $200, please let me know. I will meet you at a CTA stop, we will use the machine to verify the fare, you will give me cash. You will save money and I will not have a useless Chicago Card in my wallet while I’m not in Chicago. It’s a win-win!
Please feel free to pass this along to anyone who might be interested.
UPDATE: The card is sold! Thanks everyone.
