MILWAUKEE – After just one week, M•CARD Online is helping thousands of riders get on board faster and easier than ever. Since its public launch on August 5th, more than 3,000 people have logged onto M•CARD Online to buy a new card, add money to their existing M•CARD or register their card.

The new online store is also getting plenty of attention – the M•CARD Online page at RideMCTS.com has been viewed nearly 9,000 times.

“From new technology to new buses to new routes, riders and everyone across the community should know we are working hard every day to improve MCTS,” Milwaukee County Transit System Managing Director Dan Boehm said.

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 and will have more features available in the future.

With the M•CARD, riders 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.
