UPDATE: As of March 17, credit card vending now available also available at all Missouri MetroLink stations.
Now you can use credit cards to purchase MetroLink tickets in Missouri! Just in time for Mardi Gras. Metro is now phasing a credit card option into our Missouri MetroLink station ticket vending machines (TVMs). These TVMs accept Visa, Mastercard and Discover credit cards, including debit cards with these logos. The following stations now have credit card options:
Airport Main, Central West End, North Hanley, Arch/Laclede’s Landing, Clayton and Civic Center
Not all TVMs at these stations have the credit card option, so look for them. As a precaution, since this is a newly installed technology, it’s a good idea to have a cash option in case of an emergency. The rest of the Missouri stations should have access to credit card vending by the end of March.
Here is a quick video demonstration of how to use the credit card option that I took at the Arch/Laclede’s Landing station this afternoon:
