How It Works
Load money onto your HOLO card online, using your phone, and at local retailers. No need to hassle with cash.
Every fare you pay for goes toward a pass. Once you spend the amount of a pass, you ride the rest of the day or month for free.
Activate autoload to reload your card with more funds when it's running low. Or you can set it to autoload a certain amount every month.
For families or others who need to manage multiple cards, you can link additional cards to your account using its serial code.
Once you create an account, you'll never have to worry about a lost card again! Simply cancel the lost card online and then transfer the balance to your new card.

If you don’t have the money to purchase a pass up-front or don’t know how often you will ride, fare capping is the best option for you. Simply ride, and the money you spend on fare will go toward earning a day or month pass. Once you spend the amount needed to earn the pass, you'll get to ride for free for the rest of the day or month.
With fare capping, you don't need to guess the amount of trips you'll make in a given period of time. This saves you money on passes you may not need while ensuring you always get a pass if you're riding frequently.
All you have to do is ride. Every time you pay for your fare, your money goes toward a pass.
You'll earn a day pass after paying for more than 2 rides in a day. The validity period for the day pass is from 3 AM on the first day until 2:59 AM on the second. For more information, view How to Earn a Day Pass.
You can earn a month pass from the first to the end of the month. For example, if an adult rider uses $7.50 of fare on their HOLO Card each day, by the 11th day they will have spent $80 (the cost of an Adult monthly pass). Now they will ride for free for the rest of the month. For more information, view How to Earn a Month Pass.
