Gateway is Metro’s new state-of-the-art smart card fare collection system. It’s a more convenient, secure way to collect fares. Instead of paper passes, Gateway will use plastic smart cards – Gateway Cards – with computer chips inside that store passes (like monthlies or weeklies) or cash value (up to $100) – including discount fares.
Load your card at ticket vending machines, online or in-store. Exact change for your fare is a thing of the past!
If you register your card, the balance will be protected if it is lost or stolen.
Your fare will automatically be capped at the daily rate, no matter how much you ride.
