Cincinnati Metro is introducing a new way to pay bus fares.
The new stored-value card is available in $10, $20 and $30 increments. Passengers will use the card like cash, along with any discounted fare card. Each time the stored-value card is used the fare amount is deducted and the remaining balance is printed on the card.
The sale spans 690 miles along US 127 from Addison, Michigan to Gadsden, Alabama.
