Period Pass and Best Fare

Board the bus and use cash to add to your MoGo card. There are two easy ways to load fares.

Period Pass credit_card

The MoGo Transit Card is the best value when you travel often. Passengers can add value to the MoGo Transit Card on the bus or at MCTA. From the time of first use for the type of pass purchased, the passenger can take unlimited trips as a Day, 7 Day, 30 Day, Semester or Yearly pass. Each pass type is consecutive days. So, the 7 Day Pass, if activated on Monday, will expire the following Sunday, regardless of the number of trips used. When the pass period expires, a new pass or Best Fare can be reloaded on the card.

Checking your card balance is as easy. Use our new MoGo Card Balance tool to get up to date transactions on your MoGo Card.

Best Fare payments

The MoGo Transit Card also can keep cash value that is not a pass. Depending on the amount of money on the card, the system will automatically select the Best Fare based on the number of trips the passenger took in a particular day, so if more than three trips are made in any one day, the most value used on the card will be $3.00. When the cash balance gets low on the card, it can be reloaded, with cash, up to $20 on the bus.

This system is different than most because it uses really smart technology and proven hardware. There is a farebox where you will always be able to put cash and coins (and tickets until they are all gone). There is a small computer the bus operator will use to count the number of passengers. And there is a 'contactless' smart card reader that will be used with our new passes listed above. Cities like Washington DC, Boston and Chicago use a similar technology.

Next Generation Fare Payment System

Coming Soon!

MCTA will be rolling out a new fare payment system that uses bank cards, Apple Pay, Google Pay, or Cash App. The current MoGo card system will close down on December 31, 2024.

More details will be coming soon, but here are some key points:

  • Use the same credit card, Apple Pay, or Cashapp Card every time.
  • Pay as you go for daily, weekly, and monthly passes.
  • Cash will still be accepted.

Why is MoGo Ending?

After 10 years of excellent service from the MoGo Card system, the equipment is getting tired and in need of replacement.
