Beginning 2013 RTD will be replacing stickers with Smart Cards. The smart cards look similar to our access cards. We will begin issuing 2013 ECO pass smart cards on December 18, 2012 at ML and FL2 front desks only from 9am until 3pm. This process will take longer than just adding a sticker to your card, however once you have your smart card you will not need to renew from year to year. Please allow additional time for the new process. These cards need to be kept separate from your access card as they have opposing programming. Please do not put holes in the smart card as this will render them useless. There is a link to the RTD website explaining what the RTD smart card is and how it works, with FAQs:
Please retain your RTD ECO pass sticker on your access card. RTD will activate all smart cards on January 1, 2013.
