137 (and counting) -- Spot-on tweets by the fake Ventra account, @ChicagoVentra.
$454 million – Amount the CTA has agreed to pay Cubic Transportation Systems for Ventra.
15 - Number of different NBA franchises the CTA could've bought instead of Ventra. Seriously, we could've bought the Timberwolves and traded Kevin Love to the Bulls.
8 – City transit systems around the world that Cubic has previously screwed over with glitches (San Diego, San Francisco, Miami, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Vancouver, Brisbane, and London). Ventra is like the Wade Phillips of transit: moving from city to city, ruining everything.
