  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.

    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.
