Metro enables Metrorail customers to use their SmarTrip® card as a 7-day unlimited rail pass. The $47 "Fast Pass" gives customers the ability to take unlimited rail trips for seven consecutive days from first use.
Previously, the pass was available only as a paper fare card. However, as of April 16, customers can load the Fast Pass onto a SmarTrip® card, either at a Metrorail station "Passes/Farecards" vending machine or online at smartrip.com.
The introduction of an unlimited pass is the latest in a series of enhancements Metro has made to SmarTrip.® In September, Metro launched "Online Reload," giving customers the ability to add value to their SmarTrip® account from their computer, and earlier this year, Metro introduced the ability to report lost or stolen cards, transfer balances to a replacement card and reset passwords online.
