MDOT MTA says temporary credit card-capable fare vending machines are planned to be installed at high-traffic stations and stops by spring 2024 while the upgrade process is underway.
Riders can download the CharmPass mobile fare payment app for the option to purchase fares with cards.

Additionally, riders also can purchase transit fares with a credit card at the agency’s Transit Store, located at 6 St. Paul St., Baltimore. The store is open 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
