WMATA Grants 15 Minute Grace Period

WMATA has granted a 15 minute grace period that will allow for customers to exit the same station within 15 minutes, particularly during service interruption, without penalty.

SmarTrip credit will offset the base rail fare of $2.15 in the peak and $1.75 in the off-peak, instead of the previous base far automatic charge. SmarTrip refunds will appear within 24 hours.The policy was approved earlier this year, and will now be implemented.
