Metrocheks are Being Replaced with SmartBenefits Vouchers
Effective November 15, 2020, paper Metrocheks will no longer be available for employers that participate in the Transit Benefit Program. SmartBenefit Vouchers will replace the Metrocheks and will be accepted beginning December 1, 2020 at staffed MARC, Amtrak, CSX, and Commuter Direct sales locations. SmartBenefit Vouchers will be available in $1.00, $10.00, and $30.00 denominations and will be accepted with the same provisions as the current Metrochek Program.
Metrocheks that have previously been distributed to employees will continue to be accepted until the close of business on March 6, 2009. After that time only the new vouchers may be used; however, employees can continue to use MetroCheks to purchase other transit passes at Metro Sales offices and Commuter Direct through March 31, 2009.
Please note that MARC tickets can now also be purchased electronically using the SmartTrip program through Commuter Direct. Consult the Commuterdirect.com web page www.commuterdirect.com for details.
Thank you for riding MTA MARC Train.
