Washington's Metro transit system is working on a system to allow riders to pay with their credit and debit cards.
Benjamin says you won't have to charge your credit or debit card for a farecard or a Smart Trip card to get on the train.
"Actually it'll be the target to use for a Smart Trip card will work on your credit card and we are working with banks right now on this."
Riders currently purchase fare cards of varying values or that are good for a certain time period. Metro hopes to have the system in place in the next 18 months.
