Recharging your metroCARD

You can recharge as needed or set up Auto recharge so you never run out of value on your metroCARD.

All you need is a Visa or MasterCard credit card and an online metroCARD account.

After recharging online, the recharge value will be available within an hour and display on your metroCARD from your first validation on any bus, train or tram and at railway station barrier gates.

The validator will flash both green and yellow lights to indicate that the online recharge has been added to your metroCARD. 

After recharging online, your updated balance and transaction history statement may take up to 24-48 hours to appear on your online metroCARD account.

Remember, if you need to recharge immediately you can instantly recharge by using a recharge machine on board any train or tram plus at many other popular locations, or by visiting a metroCARD agent.

If you are recharging on-board please note the machines only accept Visa and MasterCard credit/bank cards and coins.
