As far as I understand, one can use contactless credit cards for riding buses and subway in Chicago, and the fares are the same. Are there any advantages of buying Ventra ticket/card over using a contactless credit card? (One scenario I can think of: maybe contactless cards are known to not work properly on all buses / at all stations? Are there any other scenarios?)

P.S. I'm talking about regular fares.
