BATA Prepares to Launch New Payment System; FlashFare

Posted: Updated:

The Bay Area Transportation Authority - BATA - is getting ready to launch a new payment system.

FlashFare replaces the company's old punch card payment system.

Now they'll use zip tickets and zoom cards.

The cards give riders the ability to re-load money onto them, and are more durable than the old cards.

Staff at BATA say the system is a step towards making things easier for not only riders, but for BATA as well.

The new FlashFare system launches on Monday.
