• Updated 4.30pm Friday 27th May - Online metrocard top up & balance check service not available

    ​Updated - 4.30pm Friday 27th May

    Metro have been unable to fix the metrocard website today and so the metrocard top up and balance check site will remain down over the weekend. We will continue to work on the issues and hope to have the site back up and running as soon as possible.

    This means that if you need to check your balance or top up your metrocard over the weekend please go to a metro agent (with eftpos or cash) or ask your driver to check / top up your card (cash only). 

    We apologise for the inconvenience​.
