Metro will soon release a commemorative SmarTrip® card for President Obama's Inauguration. The reusable plastic card will come pre-loaded with a One-Day Pass that provides unlimited travel on Metrorail on the day it is first used. Each commemorative SmarTrip® costs $15.

One dollar more than the cost of a regular one-day pass and $4 less than the cost of purchasing a SmarTrip® card and One-Day Pass separately.

The commemorative SmarTrip® card can be reloaded just like a regular SmarTrip® card.
