Fare Technology Modernization | Valley Metro

Valley Metro is driving into the future with new technology and options for riders to purchase fare and more easily access their transit system. In the future, riders will be able to purchase fare on their mobile device or through a reloadable fare card and scan or tap that fare on new fare readers throughout the system. Both options will be an account-based system where riders can add funds, track transaction history, view account balances and more. Here is a look at future updates for the fare system.
