Special Metro "Mass Pass" for Pope's Visit

From my colleague Lena Sun in today's Washington Post: Metro is selling rail passes for $9 for April 17, the day of Pope Benedict XVI's Mass at Nationals Park. The commemorative "Mass Pass" is a paper farecard that can be used for unlimited travel from the 5 a.m. opening until the midnight closing. The deadline for online and bulk orders is Friday.

Customers can order up to 22 passes online with a major credit card. The cards will also be available at Metro sales offices through April 17 at Metro Center, the Pentagon Transit Center and Metro headquarters, at 600 Fifth St. NW.

To place a bulk order of more than 22 passes, call 202-962-5700. Metro is urging those attending the 10 a.m. Mass to buy the passes ahead of time to avoid lines at Farecard machines in stations.
