Capital Metro Ticket Sales Limit

To prepare for our new fares going into effect January 18, Capital Metro is limiting the number of passes sold to two of each type of pass, per person. The restriction applies to passes sold online, at the Capital Metro Transit Store, and at all participating retail outlets.

The limit is effective today through January 17 for online sales. The last day to purchase passes at retail outlets and the Transit Store will be January 15.

The weekend before the new fares take effect, Capital Metro staff will “switch out” the passes at all of the retail outlets. Therefore, no passes will be sold the weekend of January 16-17 at retail outlets and the Transit Store.

Regular sales will resume at retail outlets, the Transit Store and online on Monday, January 18, 2010 (at the new rates).

Passes purchased at the current rates will still be honored after the fares change, provided the pass is valid.

    Regarding the statement -“Passes purchased at the current rates will still be honored after the fares change, provided the pass is valid.” What does “…provided the pass is valid” mean? I have never seen an expiration date or any other marker idicating a new, never used or activated card can expire or become invalid.
    Please explain…!

    AJ,
    It’s just our general disclaimer that boarding with a pass requires the pass be valid.

    Just because a new pass has not been validated doesn’t mean the pass is valid. The magnetic strip may have been damaged either on purpose or inadvertently by the customer. In rare cases the pass may be counterfeit.

    You’re right, there are no expiration dates on our passes. But, once they have been “activated” by the farebox for the first time, the clock is running. For example, once you activate a 31-day pass, you won’t be able to use it on the 33rd day. The pass won’t be valid.
