MWRTA will send out updated announcements when a new, final launch date is set to alert riders of the upcoming changes.

MWRTA ensures that riders will have advance notice before launching the new collection system, and will have ample time to receive their new cards and set up their fare accounts on the MWRTA Catch App.

Riders of all MWRTA services, including Fixed Route, Demand Response, and Catch Connect, will continue to ride at no cost until fare collection is resumed in the coming months.
