Weekly Bus Pass Users Must Have SmarTrip Card

January 20, 2011

January 20, 2011 -- Starting Saturday, January 29, Metro will no longer sell the paper weekly bus pass.  This affects Metrobus, ART and all other regional bus providers.  Users of the 7-Day Regional Bus Pass must have a plastic SmarTrip card.

Advantages of having the weekly bus pass on your SmarTrip card include:

  • Being able to buy passes for two weeks at a time
  • Having the pass start on any day and being valid for the next seven consecutive days
  • Same cost as the paper version ($15)
  • Unlimited travel on regular Metrobus and regional bus routes, including ART, DASH, DC Circulator, CUE, Fairfax Connector, Ride On and TheBus


  • SmarTrip cards can be used on both the bus and the Metro train
  • You can not add a bus pass to your card if you have a negative balance
  • You must register your SmarTrip card at www.smartrip.com before you can file a claim

Customers can purchase a SmarTrip card and add the 7-Day Regional Bus Pass to it at any Metro sales office or one of the Commuter Stores located in Ballston, Rosslyn, Crystal City and Shirlington. Learn more at www.metroopensdoors.com

Visit the Mobile Commuter Store!

The Mobile Commuter Store will be selling SmarTrip cards and bus passes along Columbia Pike on Saturday, January 29. Come see us to purchase a SmarTrip card and get your questions answered.
