In late 2020 (date to be announced), Northstar Link will introduce new fareboxes, Smart Ride Cards, Smart Ride Tickets and the Smart Ride App for mobile phones. These options offer easy, convenient, cash-free fare-paying options.
Most existing passes will be replaced. With fares not currently being charged due to COVID-19, customers may not have the opportunity to use up current passes. Customers will be able to exchange unused or partially used passes for credit on a new Smart Ride Card.
