ST. LOUIS – Metro has started testing its new Gateway Card fare collection system to two groups of customers.
One hundred MetroLink customers are using smart cards at ticket vending machines and ticket validators. Their feedback will be sought, allowing Metro to make adjustments before it is rolled out to all customers next year.
A second group of 100 customers, local students, are testing a hybrid Gateway Card, which contains both old and new technologies.
Riders who want to learn more about the Gateway Card can read about it online or call 314-982-1500 from Missouri or 618-274-1500 from Illinois.
