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.
You will be able to load your card at ticket vending machines or at MetroStore.
Fare will automatically be capped at the daily rate, no matter how much you ride.
If you register your card, the balance will be protected if it is lost or stolen.
Gateway Cards are currently available to full fare customers and senior citizens at
the corner of 8th & Pine in downtown St. Louis.
