Not Everyone Happy With Ventra's Commuter Advice

By Jon Graef in News on Aug 18, 2013 7:00PM


Metra aside, not everyone is indeed warming to Ventra, especially those on social media site Twitter.

More than a few sardonic Twitter users hijacked the commuter service's "commuter clues" hashtag after Ventra addended it to some super helpful advice for the ladies, according to DNAInfo Chicago. (And by super helpful, we mean bizarre and vaguely patronizing. Notice how they don't really have fashion tips for the dudes.)

The result? Classic Internet hilarity.


If nothing else, a lesson for Ventra: don't be our girlfriends. Just rip us off and leave us in peace. You're new to Chicago, so you'll get the hang of this right soon.
