m-Card & m-Card Account Terms and Conditions

Purchasing an m-Card and loading a bus pass on it entitles you, to use the transit system.  However, like most bank cards, Metrobus retains ownership of m-Cards and reserves the right to confiscate and not return or refund a card if it is not used in accordance with the regulations below:

The serial number on your m-Card must not be altered in any way.

Do not deface or alter the appearance of your m-Card.

When you are not using your m-Card, it can be transferred to another person who would ride the bus in the same fare category (eg. Adult to Adult, Child to Child, Senior to Senior), however, each person boarding a bus must have there own way to pay the fare.  Monthly and Semester Passes can only be used by one person per trip.  10-Ride passes can be swiped once for each person boarding using the same m-Card.  Transferring an m-Card to a person in another fare category is strictly prohibited.

Tips

Always carry your pass with you. Do not leave it in your locker or unattended. Treat your bus pass as you would cash, because there are no free replacements for lost or stolen passes.

Monthly passes are sold by the calendar month, not 30 days from the date of purchase.

30-day passes are effective from the date the card is reloaded, not from the date of first use.

Confiscated Passes

A driver may confiscate your bus pass for the following reasons:

Improperly lending your pass to another person

Handing your pass out the window

Defacing or altering the appearance of the pass.

Caring for Your m-Card

m-Cards are very durable, however, your card may be damaged by the following elements:

Extreme heat or cold

Dampness

Bending, scratching, or punching holes in the card

Conditions

All fare media products are non-refundable.

There are no refunds or replacements for unregistered m-Cards under any circumstances.  Registered m-Card holders can have a lost or stolen pass replaced for a $5.00 replacement fee.  Once the replacement fee has been paid, we will then load the replacement card with the balance that was remaining on the original card at the time the card was reported lost or stolen.  Replacements can only be done at our office at 25 Messenger Drive.

Electronic Correspondence

By registering your m-Card and providing your email address, you are agreeing that we can send you service information, customer news, AIR MILES® reward miles offers, and other topics of correspondence which may be of interest to you. You will have the opportunity to opt out or unsubscribe from these messages at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link contained within the message or by managing your preferences from within your m-Card account.

Conditions of Use:

No order will be accepted unless complete information is provided including full address and phone numbers. We do not accept any order originating from a free, web-based, or email forwarding address - the customer must provide an ISP or domain-based address - one that can be traced back to a "real" person. Since the list of these types of email addresses is growing daily, we check every email address. We do not accept orders unless the email/domain is a legitimate website or ISP - something that can provide definitive identification of the email address in question. This security measure is not fool-proof. If in doubt, we call the phone number listed on the order. We will alert a cardholder by phone that his or her credit card information was being used at our e-store. This sometimes results in a call to the issuing bank of the credit card to alert their fraud department.

We confirm, in all cases, the address and phone number supplied on the order matches that of the credit card applicant as verified by the credit card company. We may also call the purchaser back to verify the purchase. By using our e-Store, you are agreeing to the above conditions of use.

Reload Your m-Card

Your card will reload on board when held in front of the validator.

 

A word about reloading times...

m-Card & validator

In most circumstances, orders received by 3:00 p.m. will reload on-board the next business day.

Online reloading of your m-Card is not instantaneous. It can take 24-48 hours for our fleet to be updated with your reload information. Please take this into consideration before reloading your m-Card and leave enough lead time for the transaction to be processed. Once our fleet has been updated with your reload information, you will be sent an email and the reload will take place on-board, the next time you hold your card in front of an on-board validator.
