Metro begins presale of commemorative Inaugural SmarTrip cards


Metro today began accepting online orders for its commemorative 2013 Inaugural SmarTrip cards. Featuring an image of President Barack Obama, the reusable plastic card comes pre-loaded with a One-Day Pass that provides unlimited travel on Metrorail on the day it is first used. Each commemorative card costs $15, which is only $1 more than the cost of a one-day paper pass and $4 less than the cost of purchasing a SmarTrip® card and One-Day Pass separately. As an added bonus, the commemorative SmarTrip® can be used as a “flash pass” for unlimited Metrobus travel on Inauguration Day, January 21.

On Inauguration Day:

Metrorail will open at 4 a.m. and close at 2 a.m.
