Metro Fare Collection Resumes Jan 2022

To keep riders and our employees safe, we suspended front door boarding on our buses in March 2020 at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. We also relaxed our rules requiring riders to use the farebox and TAP validator.

With vaccinations well underway and mask wearing required on our system, we will resume front door boarding only and restart fare collection January 10, 2022.

We are working to make sure everyone knows about these changes well in advance and have an opportunity to learn about our Low Income Fare is Easy (LIFE) program.

Be ready with your Tap Card starting  January 10, 2022.  Student K-12 Tap Cards are available. Low Income Fare is available through Metro’s LIFE program.  College and University students can access Tap Cards through  this link . For all fare information, and program details please visit
