WASHINGTON (WDVM) — SmarTrip launched for Android customers on Tuesday, June 8, 2021. The launch comes because the Washington Metropolitan Space Transit Authority prepares for Metro riders to return.
The SmarTrip app provides Android customers the chance to handle SmarTrip playing cards from a cell system. This consists of including funds to playing cards, shopping for money-saving passes, viewing SmartBenefits, establishing Auto Reload and planning out journeys. Metro is waiving the 2 greenback SmarTrip card payment for Android customers who purchase a digital card in the course of the subsequent six months.
“This breakthrough means our prospects can now pay to journey Metro as simply as they purchase espresso with their telephones,” stated Metro Common Supervisor and CEO Paul J. Wiedefeld. “It’s an funding in the way forward for Metro, as we modernize our system to include many new applied sciences.”
An app was launched to Apple customers in September of 2020.
