Paying Your Fare On The Metro

September 10, 2019

When you board, have your fare ready. All buses have electronic fareboxes that accept
cash, coins and various Metro passes. You can use any denomination, up to a twenty
dollar bill, but keep in mind that the fare boxes don’t return your change in cash. Instead, you’ll be issued a “Change Card”
that can be used like a debit card on future fares. One adult riding one way will pay $1.50 on
most routes, or up to $3.00 on commuter express routes. Pay your fare either in cash or with
a pass. To get you to your final destination, you
may need to transfer to another route. If so, just ask the driver for a transfer
when you board. They’re free! Transfers are valid for two hours and allow
you to catch the next connecting bus. When boarding your next bus, simply swipe
the transfer ticket and take a seat.

    The fareboxes don't give change in cash.
