The Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) upgraded its M•CARD Online, which now allows riders to check their balance, add money (passes or stored cash value) or even order a new card, all from a computer or smartphone. The new service also allows people to register their cards in case they are lost or stolen.

“We’ve made huge improvements to the transit system in the past few years, including more routes, newer buses and of course this new technology,” Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele said. “M•CARD Online makes riding easier and more convenient than ever to connect to work, school and everywhere else MCTS takes you.”

On top of M•CARD Online, passengers can still buy and update their smart cards at more than 90 locations across Milwaukee County. Either online or in a store, customers can load seven or 31-day passes onto the M•CARD, or they can put Stored Cash Value onto the card to pay as they go for rides throughout the system.

M•CARD Online is still in beta but is live at RideMCTS.com for all users.
