Metro Eliminates $2 SmarTrip Card Fee for Seniors Beginning January 16

Per Montgomery County: “As part of Metro’s ongoing commitment to expand access and affordability to public transit, the Senior SmarTrip program will join all other Metro reduced fare programs in offering SmarTrip cards at no additional cost. Metro will begin to offer Senior SmarTrip cards at no cost to customers aged 65 and older on Tuesday, Jan. 16.
The elimination of the $2 fee removes the need for a third-party payment collection, which is currently a barrier to participation for social service agencies and other organizations to distribute the card. With the elimination of the card fee Metro is even more affordable for seniors.

Senior SmarTrip cards are available at all Montgomery County libraries, TRiPS stores and the County Treasury office in Rockville. Bring a proof of age when getting a card, which will provide free rides on all County Ride On buses and most Metrobuses in the County.”
