METRO Red Line

All fares $1 in September and October

Metro Transit wants to thank those who have been riding with us, reintroduce ourselves to those who have been away for a while, and welcome those who are new to our community and our transit system.

During this time of transition, we are excited to offer $1 rides during September and October as our region continues to move forward together.
