Ticket and Fare Prices

MCTS M∙CARD Fares

The MCTS M•CARD is a reusable plastic smart card that provides discounted fares, replacing paper passes and tickets. Receive the same benefits you do now and more! Read below to see how it will work.

 

NOTE: Paper tickets and passes are still currently available & accepted.

RECOMMENDED: We recommend as soon as you get your MCTS M∙CARD to write down the serial number which is located on the lower left hand side on the back of the card (starts with 05), and keep this number in a safe place. In the event your card is lost or stolen, MCTS can block your card and replace it with your remaining balance. Once the MCTS M∙CARD web portal is available, you’ll be able to check your card’s balance and load 1-, 7-, & 31-day passes and stored value onto your card.
