Using Outdated Products 

ConnectCard Monthly Pass

If you purchased a monthly pass on your ConnectCard BEFORE January 1 to use in January 2022, some of our systems, including ConnectCard machines and retail locations, will not allow you to purchase a 7-Day or 31-Day pass to use in February while the January pass is still active on your card because your pass is a fare product from our former fare structure. Once your January pass expires, you will be able to purchase a new 7-Day or 31-Day pass to your ConnectCard, as well as add a pending pass, without issue.

If you are not able to wait until your current monthly pass expires to purchase a new pass, and need to have an alternate fare option in advance of February 1, the following options are available:

 - Add a pending 7-Day or 31-Day pass online at manage.connectcard.org
 - Add stored value to your ConnectCard
 - Purchase a 3-Hour Pass, Day Pass or 7-Day Pass ConnecTix
 - Use mobile ticketing (for bus and incline riders)
 - Visit the Downtown Service Center at 623 Smithfield Street to receive a second ConnectCard free of charge, and purchase a second monthly pass ready to use for February

This does not affect customers who purchased fare products after January 1.

ConnecTix and Other Fare Products

Riders who purchase a single-trip ConnecTix, a 10-trip ConnecTix, a trip + transfer ConnecTix, or any other product that does not transition to the new fare structure before January 1 will still be able to use that fare product for the number of trips at the time of purchase until it expires. (For example, a single-trip ConnecTix will not include free transfers for up to three hours; a trip + transfer ConnecTix will only provide one trip and one transfer).

ConnectCard Autoload Feature

Since the new weekly and monthly passes only become active when you first use them, you'll no longer able to be able to have these passes automatically load onto your ConnectCard on a given day or date.

If you are currently signed up for a pass that loads automatically each month, your subscription will be canceled.

You can still automatically load up to $200 in stored value on your ConnectCard on a recurring schedule. If you are signed up for a recurring reloading of stored value, it will continue as usual.


What will it look like at the farebox?

If you're using a 7-Day or 31-Day pass: The expiration date and time will show after tapping your card. The expiration time will be the end of service on the date your pass expires.


If you're using stored value: When you first tap your fare product the fare box will display the fare that is being deducted for that ride, the expiration date and remaining balance on your card.


If you're using stored value and transferring within the unlimited three-hour window: The expiration time of your transfer window will display. Additionally, transfers will show as $0.00 and your remaining card balance will also be displayed. 


If you're using ConnecTix: The expiration date and time of the activated pass will display.
