Currently, Xpress bus customers can use cash, Breeze Cards and magnetic tickets to pay their fares. Xpress will no longer sell magnetic tickets after Aug. 31, and no magnetic tickets will be accepted on coaches after Dec. 31. Fares will not increase.
The State Road and Tollway Authority says the move will make boarding faster and provide a quicker, more secure payment system to passengers. The MARTA Breeze Card is also accepted by CobbLinc and Gwinnett County Transit.
