Ride On buses to resume fare collection in August

Fares remain free at least through the month of July. The reduced $1 fare will restart in August. Riders can use their SmarTrips cards or pay with cash at the ticket vending machines before boarding.

Seniors, people with disabilities and youth under 18 (older if still in high school) can ride free on Ride On and select Metro buses in Montgomery County at all times. Seniors must be 65 years or older and have a valid Metro Senior ID Card (Senior SmarTrip Card) or Medicare Card with a photo ID.

Students can get the Youth Cruiser SmarTrip Card at any MCPS middle or high school location, libraries and MCDOT’s TRiPS Commuter Stores. Learn more here.
