Metro Sales Office to relocate to Metro Center Station with expanded hours, effective February 26

Metro's in-person sales office is moving to a more convenient location inside Metro Center Station and will offer expanded hours, starting February 26, 2018.

The new Metro Center Sales Office will be open weekdays from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. - two hours later than the existing sales office at Metro Headquarters, which closes at 4 p.m. The new location will allow customers to conveniently purchase SmarTrip® cards, add value to their card, purchase senior and specialty cards and pick-up bulk sales packages - all without exiting the Metrorail system.

"Metro Center is the center of Metro, making it the ideal location for our sales office," said Dennis Anosike, Metro's Chief Financial Officer. "Relocating the sales office to a space within the rail system will maximize convenience for visitors and customers, who will now be able to purchase fare products without leaving Metro."

The existing sales office at Metro Headquarters will permanently close on February 23, 2018.
