Q:

So when the card expires, it is then worth $9, correct? Thanks.

No, the pass must be activated by the expiration date. After that date, the CTA pass loses its value.

I see that you have to wait on shipping to recieve the passes on paper, but is there a way to download them directly to my phone if I have the groupon app?

Q:

silly question I'm sure: Does this pass work from Kenosha WI? & if you traveled on Saturday at 4pm and began your return after midnight that would be a 2 day pass needed?

MJ B.  asked on  Jun 26, 2012

A:

The CTA trains extend North as far as Wilmette, IL. I believe the route you are referencing is a Metra train.. This Groupon is valid only for CTA buses and the 'L' trains. CTA unlimited-ride passes are not valid on Metra trains or Pace buses. Thanks for your question!
