SMARTRIP AUTO RELOAD NOW AVAILABLE
Loading value to your SmarTrip® card is easier than ever. No more waiting in line to use fare machines at Metro Stations or rushing to load value on the bus, knowing others are waiting in line behind you. SmarTrip now has an Auto Reload feature to automatically add value to your card once the balance drops below a minimum threshold!
To use Auto Reload, customers must register their SmarTrip cards and have an online SmarTrip account. Customers can log into their account, choose the amount that they want to regularly add and link their SmarTrip card to a credit card or debit card. That pre-defined amount will automatically be added to the SmarTrip card when the balance drops below $20 on a standard SmarTrip card or below $10 on a Senior/Disabled SmarTrip card.
For customers who use a Metro 7-Day Buss or Rail Pass, Auto Reload will add a new pass when three days remain on the pass. Similarly, for Metro’s 28-Day or 30-Day Pass, Auto Reload is triggered when seven days remain on the active pass.
