Collections to Resume 6/1
Monday, May 16, 2022
MART will resume collecting fares on our fixed route buses on June 1, 2022. Reduced fare customers can come to MART and get their new cards that same day. (Reminder that your existing Charlie Card will NOT work on the new fareboxes.) Passes will be a 31 calendar day rolling pass (31 days from the date of activation).
MART is honoring your May paper pass (if you bought one) for you as a rider to receive your replacement pass on a new MART card for June. You will have to show your May paper pass to ride the bus to one of MART’s ticket locations. Thank you for your understanding.
The online purchasing portal is active. Full fare customers and those reduced fares who have already come to MART to register can go to https://martefare.mrta.us to purchase or activate their cards. This will allow you to renew pass or recharge stored value from the comforts of home.
Stay tuned for updates and links on when the mobile app will go live (still pending).
