Dunkin' Donuts offers Ventra discount today


To celebrate its new location at the Belmont Brown and Red Line station, Dunkin' Donuts is offering a 10 percent discount for items purchased Tuesday only at that location if customers show a Ventra card.

Ventra is the CTA's new fare payment system that became available to the public Sept. 9. Chicago Public Schools and university students and CTA employees were the first to get the cards.

The CTA said last week it has finished mailing cards to riders who have a Chicago Card Plus and filled out appropriate paperwork. The 50,000 riders with registered Chicago Cards will have their Ventra cards mailed out early this week, the CTA said.
