Metro selling commemorative Inauguration SmarTrip cards
The city is abuzz ahead of next week’s Inauguration and everyone is getting in on the action—including Metro.
Metro will sell Commemorative Inaugural SmarTrip cards at nine stations this Sunday.
On Sunday, Metro will sell $15 Commemorative Inaugural SmarTrip cards, featuring an image of President Obama, between 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the following nine stations:
• Branch Avenue
• Largo Town Center
• New Carrollton
• Shady Grove
• Union Station
The reusable plastic card comes pre-loaded with a One-Day Pass that provides unlimited travel on Metrorail on the day it is used. At $15, the card is $4 less than the cost of purchasing a new SmarTrip card and One-Day Pass separately. As an added bonus, the card can be used as a "flash pass" for unlimited Metrobus travel on Inauguration Day.
After the one-day pass is used, the Commemorative cards may be reloaded and used like any other SmarTrip.
On Thursday and Friday, the cards will be available at Metro Sales Offices and regional transit stores during regular hours. Below is a list of locations and hours of all Metro Sales Offices:
