Metro to Add Credit Card Payment for Parking

Loudoun County commuters who use the Metro system should be please to hear that paying to park at Metrorail stations will soon get easier as Metro is looking to expand the option of allowing customers to pay for parking using a credit card.

The Metro Board Customer Service, Operations and Safety Committee on Thursday (June 10) endorsed the installation of a credit card payment option at 22 Metrorail parking facilities. The committee also endorsed retrofitting 55 SmarTrip card sales machines to extend their life expectancy. The Metro Board of Directors will vote on the proposal at its June 24 meeting.

Each parking facility will have at least one exit lane equipped with a credit card payment option. Customers will be able to use their Discover, Mastercard, Visa, American Express or Japanese Credit Bank cards at these locations in addition to paying with a SmarTrip card.
