(WUSA) -- In Decembers, Ride On customers can load monthly passes onto their SmarTrip cards. The paper passes for unlimited rides in Montgomery County are being phased out and customers won't be able to buy them anymore after January 31, 2012 but they will be able to still pay fares with cash.
The $45 monthly passes can be loaded onto the SmarTrip cards in person or online. Online, customers have the option of purchasing monthly passes automatically, which would be added to the card seven days before the end of every month, say authorities.
If you want to add the monthly pass money to a SmarTrip card in person, then you can go to these locations:
• TRiPS Commuter Store: 8413 Ramsey Avenue, Silver Spring (Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.)
• TRiPS Commuter Store: 17 Wisconsin Circle, Friendship Heights (Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.)
