Chicago Transit Authority officials say tens of thousands of fare cards bought four years ago will expire this year and free replacements are available.

That includes nearly 60,000 Chicago Cards and more than 28,000 Chicago Card Plus cards. Some will expire as soon as next month.

Customers who have registered their cards will be notified online. But those who haven't should check in person, phone or online.

Officials say if cards aren't replaced, customers could lose the remaining balance on their card.
