Downtown Zone is 50¢

Photo of quartersHave a lunch date, going to a meeting or just exploring?

Whether you work downtown or are visiting, Metro Transit's Downtown Zone is inexpensive travel without the footwork. It's a bus or train ride for a fraction of the normal fare!

You can reach most downtown stores, restaurants and businesses on the Downtown Zone fare, which is 50¢ at all times.

On buses

Simply tell the driver before you pay your fare that you will be riding only within the Downtown Zone to avoid paying the normal fare. If you ride outside the zone, the driver will ask you to pay the added fare. Transfers are not available with Downtown Zone fares.

On light rail

Buy a Downtown Zone ticket at the station's ticket machine. It is valid for one ride on the next train. If you leave the Downtown Zone without buying a regular fare ticket, you may be fined up to $180.
