Fares and How to Ride

Getting ready to ride the bus?

Here are three easy steps to make your METRO experience more enjoyable.

  1. Plan your trip ahead of time using our Connection GuideMETRO's Trip Planner tool, METRO's T.R.I.P. app, or Google Transit.
  2. Get a Q Card.  It works just like a debit card and is used to pay bus fare. Refer to the list below or click here to find a Q Card retailer in your area; you can also order a Q Card online. Until you have a Q card, you can pay $1.25 cash for local bus routes. Information on park and ride fares can be found here
  3. Walk, bike or ride to your bus pick up location with Q Card or cash in hand and board the bus. Simply touch your Q Card to the reader to pay your fare. Want to load your bike on the bus? Visit Bikes on Buses for a few simple tips.
