    Buying your MetroMaster

    For your first MetroMaster you will need to take along a passport-size photograph for the PhotoCard. You will be issued with either a MetroCard PhotoCard or a BusMaster PhotoCard depending on where you buy your ticket.

    Existing MetroCard and BusMaster PhotoCards can be used with MetroMaster, and you can buy your first card up to two working days before the date you want it to start.

    Renewing MetroMaster

    To renew a card just show your PhotoCard. Cards continuing on from previous expiry date can normally be renewed one week in advance.

    If you can't get to a sales office, a friend or family member can renew your card for you by quoting your personal PhotoCard number. To renew by post send your PhotoCard number, the required starting date and covering cheque to either :

    Using your MetroMaster

    Just show your MetroMaster to the driver when boarding the bus. Always carry your PhotoCard for identification and validation of your ticket. MetroMaster must only be used by the valid user with matching PhotoCard.
