MILWAUKEE – The Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) is happy to announce the latest technology upgrade to the bus system – M•CARD Online. With M•CARD Online, riders can check their balance, add money (passes or Stored Cash Value) to their M•CARD or even order a new card, all from a computer or smartphone. The new service also allows people to register their cards in case they are lost or stolen.

M•CARD Online is still in beta but is live at RideMCTS.com for all users.

“We’ve made huge improvements to the transit system in the past few years, including more routes, newer buses and of course this new technology,” Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele said. “M•CARD Online makes riding easier and more convenient than ever to connect to work, school and everywhere else MCTS takes you.”

With the M•CARD you never need to worry about exact change; plus using the M•CARD saves money versus paying with cash ($1.75 vs $2.25). All riders receive a free 90-minute transfer when they pay with their M•CARD.

On top of M•CARD Online, passengers can still buy and update their smart cards at more than 90 locations across Milwaukee County. Either online or in a store, customers can load seven and 31-day passes onto the M•CARD, or they can put Stored Cash Value onto the card to pay as they go for rides throughout the system.

MCTS provides, on average, 150,000 rides a day to people across Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Washington and Waukesha Counties who rely on MCTS to get to work, school and medical appointments.
