Metro Tests Pay-Online SmarTrip



    Some Metro riders can now add money to their SmarTrip cards from their own computers.

    Metro launched a pilot program to test out a new system, The Washington Post reported.

    The program allows users to add money online using a credit card instead of having to go to a machine.

    Metro randomly selected about 5,000 riders for the four-week program.

    Metro plans to replace the SmarTrip technology at some point.
