End of Metrocheks
This question came in during today's online discussion about traffic and transit issues:
Washington, D.C.: Now that they have stopped issuing Metrocheks, can I cash in SmartBenefits vouchers toward weekly rail passes? Until Metro has the capability of adding the passes to Smartrip cards, I will have to pay $50 more per month if my only option is to download the $115 subsidy to my card.
I said I knew the Metrochek program would end on Dec. 1, but wasn't sure about using the new SmartBenefits vouchers to purchase Metro passes.
Steven Taubenkibel, a spokesman for the transit authority, checked on that and said, Yes, you will be able to exchange SmartBenefits vouchers for Metro passes.
Also, here's a list of the places where you can exchange Metrocheks.
