Team Appreciation Day
Thursday, October 24
Join us in thanking all our team members for the work they do to keep MATBUS running - drivers, dispatchers, road supervisors, mechanics, and office staff. You may see some of them wearing their new Years of Service pins!
MATBUS staff will be at the Ground Transportation Center lobby all week 7:00am to 7:00pm, introducing the new MATPASS and Rider ID. The MATPASS is a new smartcard that loads all types of fares, including unlimited ride passes and 10-ride cards. For those who get discount fares, the Special User Card is being replaced with a Rider ID section on the back of the MATPASS. The Rider ID section includes a photo for easy identification.
During this week, Special User Card holders should stop at the GTC to get their new MATPASS with Rider ID. The Rider ID section is also available to those paying adult fare. MATBUS staff can transfer any balance on your current smartcard pass onto your new MATPASS when you switch.
