  • My card is not working when I go to pay my fare. What should I do? If your tap was unsuccessful, you will hear a double tone where the screen will then read "Misread Media" or "Smart Card Not Valid". If this occurs, try tapping your card again and make sure to keep the card level and flat against the reader.
  • What do I do if my TropiCard is lost or stolen? Do I need to purchase a new one? If you have registered your card on MyTropiCard.com, you can report it lost or stolen by speaking with Customer Service at 239-533-8726 or in-person at Rosa Parks Transportation Center. The customer service representative will be able to "badlist" the lost card and reassign a replacement card for $5.00. This is a one-time fee that is good for the life of the card. The remaining balance from your lost card will be transferred to your new card. Your card is reusable, reloadable, and never expires.
  • What if I didn't register my card, and it was lost or stolen? If you have not registered your TropiCard, we have no way of deactivating your old card or replacing your money.
  • Does my account freeze until I receive a new card? Report your card lost or stolen immediately so that your funds can be frozen. As soon as you acquire a replacement card for $5.00, your fare balance will be accessible.
  • What happens to my information if my card is lost or stolen?  Your card does not contain personal information so if it is lost or stolen there is no issue.
  • Can I use my TropiCard on the beach trolleys? Yes, all buses and trolleys accept the TropiCard.
