All passengers must have a registered SmarTrip® card and must be enrolled in their employer's SmartBenefits® program. The enrolled registered card number is what links you to your transit benefit. If you have a SmarTrip® card, but you're not sure if it's registered, call SmarTrip® Customer Service to verify: 1-888-SMARTRIP (762-7874). If you are not sure if you're enrolled, contact your SmartBenefits® administrator.

If you plan to use a van pool, MetroAccess, MARC, VRE, D & B Bus/Quick's Commuter Service, National Coachworks/Martz, CommuterDirect.com, Arlington County Commuter stores or MTA commuter buses, allocate your benefit to your transit provider by the designated date. The 21st of the month is the new monthly deadline to update your SmartBenefits® passenger allocation account for the upcoming month's benefits.
