Hi CUTgroup Member,
Thanks for your interest in our CUTGroup test of the new Ventra mobile transit app. You have been chosen to participate in this test. Here are some details about next steps:
Early next week you will get an email invitation directly from Ventra to download the app. Even though this is a CUTGroup test, the fares you buy in the app are realâ€”when you you load fare or tickets in the app, your chosen payment method will be charged and the fare will go into your Ventra Cardâ€™s transit account or toward real mobile tickets for Metra. Also, you will receive emails from Ventra giving you extra info or updates.
- If you have an iPhone, please download the TestFlight app from the iTunes store. You will need this app before you can download the Ventra app.
- If you have an Android device, please make sure you have a Google+ account. You will need to join Google+ before you can download the Ventra app.
Once you have the app, please start using it in your day to day. If you find any bugs or problems using the app, you can use Ventra's Bug Report Form. We will also be emailing a couple of times during the timeframe of July 7 - 15 to ask a few short questions to see how things are going.
Then on July 15 or 16, 2015, between 3:30 and 7:30 PM we will have in-person sessions that will last between 30 - 45 minutes. Here are the details:
Wednesday July 15 or Thursday July 16
Between 3:30 and 7:30 PM
The Chicago Community Trust
225 N. Michigan Ave, Suite 2200, Chicago, IL 60601
If you can still make it on either of these dates, please let us know what time slot you want by completing this form. For your participation in both the remote and in-person parts of the test, you will receive two $20 VISA gift cards (total of $40).
We will get back to you with a confirmation of your time.
If this location doesn't work for you, or if you just can't make it on this night after all, no big deal. If you have any questions or comments, just hit "reply" and let me know what you think.
Remember: use this form to tell us about your availability.
Thanks for being a member of the CUTGroup!
