SMART Cards are permanent, reloadable fare cards that only need to be held close to or waved over the SMART Card reader target on the farebox. Since SMART Cards use RFID technology, you won't even have to take your SMART Card out of your purse or wallet to use it!

Day passes are good for unlimited rides during the designated day period. The pass is activated by dropping it into the slot on top of the farebox. The valid dates will be printed on the pass so you'll know when it expires. Once activated, you just slide the pass through the slot on the top right side, and you'll be good to go.
