The Quick Ticket process assumes that a rider will be purchasing tickets for the same station pairs repeatedly using the same credit or debit card. To use the Quick Ticket option on any of our ticket vending machines (TVMs), you must use a credit or debit card to purchase your initial ticket choice. Each Quick Ticket purchase is automatically cleared through the bank that issued the credit/ debit card to the patron. A ticket will not be issued if the bank does not authorize the purchase.
Within six months of the initial purchase, you may go to any TVM and insert the same credit/ debit card used for the initial purchase into the credit card reader. A message will appear: "Retrieving records". Up to the last three ticket purchases made with that card within the last six months will be displayed.
By pushing the button next to the ticket type that you wish to repurchase, the TVM will charge the card and issue an updated version of that ticket type.
Quick Ticket reduces the time and effort required to purchase a ticket and reduces the chance of making an incorrect choice.
For example, purchasing a monthly pass for the first time in January requires a minimum of seven different button choices. To purchase a February Monthly Pass, you simply insert your card into the TVM card reader. The TVM will automatically display the January Monthly Pass information (ticket type, station pairs, price) next to a button choice. By pushing only one button, the TVM will charge your card and issue a February Monthly Pass. In the case of a debit card purchase, the TVM will require you to enter your debit card PIN (personal identification number) number before the transaction can be completed.The Quick Ticket option is available with all ticket types.
