Metro Ride’s fare structure is designed to reward those who ride more frequently. To save money, consider purchasing tickets, tokens or monthly bus passes in advance of your ride. You can pay cash each time you ride, but the cash fare is higher than our pre-sold fares. Elderly and disabled passengers can ride for half the adult fare by showing a valid Medicare Card issued by the Social Security Administration or a Reduced Fare Card issued by Metro Ride.
