Daily & Weekly Bus/Rail Passes

Day Pass

If you have more than one round trip to make in a day, a Day Pass may be a better value than a transfer. For just $2, you get unlimited rides on METRO's Local bus service and METRORail for 24 hours from the time of purchase. Purchase a Day Pass from the Operator as you board any Local METRO bus with cash, tokens or a Stored Value Card. You also may purchase a Day Pass at a Ticket Vending Machine (TVM) located on each rail platform with cash or credit/debit cards, but not tokens (see "Using a TVM" below).

Week Pass

A good bargain for visitors that will be using METRO
transit regularly is the weekly pass for $9. The weekly pass offers
unlimited rides on all Local routes and the Rail for 7 days from date of
first use.

Many, but not all METROStops (such as Randall's, HEB, Kroger, etc.) sell
the weekly pass as well as other METRO fare items. All METRO fare items
can also be purchased at the two downtown METRO RideStores located at
1001 Travis at McKinney or 1900 Main at St Joseph Parkway (METRO
building) between 7:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.
