Local Fares

Paying Your Fare

All fares can be pre-paid by loading a pass or Stored Valued (cash) on a TAP card and then tapping each time you board. On buses you can also pay for a single ride with cash using exact change. Visit our Frequently Asked Questions page to learn more about our new fare structure.


Note: TAP cards are $2 at TAP vending machines, onboard buses and at over 400 vendor locations . TAP cards must be sold with a pass or Stored Value. Reduced Fares (Senior, Disabled/Medicare, College/Vocational, and Student K-12) on Metro Rail are only valid when loaded on a special TAP card. Must have a special TAP card to receive reduced fare price. One card per rider is required. Cards are non-transferable.
