Metro Fare Card Machines Malfunctioned This Morning
Metro's credit and debit machines malfunctioned at stations systemwide for nearly two hours this morning.
From about 6 to 8 a.m. Thursday, customers were not able to load money onto their SmarTrip cards or use credit and debit cards to buy new farecards, Metro spokesman Steven Taubenkibel said.
"We were experiencing intermittent problems," he said. "It's working now."
Officials are trying to figure out what caused the bug on the first day of the month.
The incident was first reported by WTOP.
