ART bus passes going paperless [UPDATED]

By Mark Berman

The switch from paper bus passes to SmarTrip bus passes will now occur on Jan. 29, rather than Jan. 1. Metro has extended use of the paper weekly passes due to software difficulties, according to Arlington Transit. Paper weekly passes will no longer be sold after Jan 29.


ART riders, get ready to go paperless in the new year: The paper weekly bus pases will no longer be sold after Jan. 1. The seven-day regional buss pass can now be loaded right onto your SmarTrip card.

While the paper passes won't be sold after the end of December, having the bus pass on SmarTrip lets you buy passes for multiple weeks at a time. The pass will cost the same amount ($15).

You can add the bus pass to your card at Metro sales offices, Commuter Stores and some CVS and Giant locations. A complete list of locations is here.
