Keep your pennies in your pocket!  That is the message from Metro Transit.

Beginning Monday pennies will no longer be accepted as payment on its MetroBus vehicles. Several months ago, the agency began phasing out rarely used 50-cent coins and $2 bills.

New fareboxes will still accept $1, $5, $10 and $20 bills, along with nickels, dimes, quarters and dollar coins. As with the old equipment, the new fareboxes will require exact change or a valid Metro pass or ticket.

The new machines provide more detailed passenger boarding information which will allow Metro to plan routes to better meet customer needs.

In the future, the new system will also allow customers to use faster and more convenient smart card technology payment methods.
