Metro Taking Orders for Inauguration SmarTrip Card

Metro is now taking orders for a commemorative inauguration-themed SmarTrip card.

The card comes preloaded with a one-day pass for unlimited Metrorail travel, as well as free Metrobus travel on Inauguration Day, Jan. 21.

It's available online for $15 while supplies last. Orders will be shipped starting in mid-December, Metro said. About 100,000 cards are available.

The SmarTrip card features an image of President Barack Obama and includes the line, "America makes history again."

In October, Metro had shared proposed designs for commemorative farecards featuring both President Obama and GOP challenger Mitt Romney. Romney's card would have read, "A new future for America."
