Madison: Metro Transit Public Hearing Scheduled
Wisconsin Eagle/10138772

Give Feedback on Fare Technology and Policy Changes

Monday, August 2 - 6:00 PM
Virtual Hearing

On Monday, August 2, Metro Transit and the City of Madison Transportation Policy and Planning Board will hold a public hearing at 6 P.M. to discuss expected changes in fare collection technology and future policy changes that will be coming in the next few years.

Metro is looking at replacing its current system of magnetic stripe card passes with smart tap cards, mobile phone payments, online account payments and fare purchase kiosks located at transfer points and bus rapid transit stations.

New technology and policies are intended to make it easier for passengers to purchase fares, speed up boarding times on buses and replace old equipment.
