Online Purchase of 31-Day Fare Card


Like convenience stores you must pay for the convenience. smile. Yes Star
Metro will still have the ticket booth at the plaza. The plaza will stay in
use. People will still be buying weekly passes along with the monthly pass.
5 busses will still be going to the plaza. They are  A,B,C,D, an E, Azalea,
Big Bend, Canopy, Dogwood and Evergreen.

Online Purchase of 31-Day Fare Card

I wonder if there's going to be any way to purchase a fare card, after C.K.
Steel is closed, a fare card without having to pay these additional
processing fees (and also having to possess a credit card)?
 
I wonder how many of Star Metro's riders don't own a credit card?

StarMetro Offers Online Purchase of 31-Day Fare Card

Today, StarMetro launches a new application that will allow customers to
purchase a 31-day fare card online with a credit card.

"Currently, customers must purchase fare cards at C.K. Steele Plaza or
StarMetro's main offices off of Appleyard Drive; in addition, customers must
have cash to purchase that fare card," said Ron Garrison, executive director
of StarMetro. "By employing this new application, we will make purchasing
StarMetro fare more convenient for our customers."

In order to purchase a 31-day fare card online, customers must first
register for an account. Through a secure provider, the customer must submit
personal information. Once the customer establishes an account, he/she may
be able to use a credit card to purchase the 31-day fare card. The initial
purchase of a 31-day fare card online will total $43.75. This total includes
a $3.00 service charge, which is applied to the purchase of all new
reloadable fare cards, and a $2.75 processing fee. Within three to five
days, the customer should receive their fare card in the mail.

During the registration process, customers may choose to execute the
automatic reload function, which simply reloads the fare card every 31 days.
This reload will total $40.75; all subsequent reloads will total this
amount, which includes the fare of $38.00 plus the $2.75 processing fee. If
a customer chooses not to execute the automatic reload feature, then that
customer will receive an email expiration notice within five days of the
expiration.

"In the future, we hope to offer more than just our 31-day fare card
online," Garrison said.

The StarCard will also allow customers to access information about
StarMetro's partners via a quick response, or QR, code displayed on the back
of the card.
