Metro Mobility Fares

Peak and off-peak fares

Riders are required to pay a fare for each one-way ride.  Riders must have their fares ready when boarding a vehicle or the driver may refuse to provide a ride. The driver will collect the correct fare, which can be paid with cash or Go-To Cards.

Drivers do not make change, so it is important to have the correct fare. The fare is determined by the pickup time.
