BARTA has transitioned to Mobile Phone and Smart Card payments. BARTA is no longer selling paper, or magnetic strip passes. Customers can either use their Mobile Phones or can use a BARTA Go Mobile Smart Card. At the present time, BARTA is still accepting paper, magnetic passes for customer fares at the farebox.

All passes purchased online will be loaded onto a BARTA Go Mobile Smart Card. After the customer receives their smart card and uses it, customers can visit the BARTA Go mobile portal to reload their card with future purchases.
