Have a child who is currently enrolled in a Miami-Dade County School between the grades of K-12? Apply online to ride transit at a discounted fare using a specially-coded EASY Card that can be loaded with a daily, weekly, or monthly pass for 50 percent less than the regular price. 

Once the form is complete and submitted, allow 15 business days for your new K-12 EASY Card to arrive in the mail.

You can also add cash value to the card at any EASY Card vending machine located in Metrorail Stations and EASY Card sales outlet. Cards will be automatically renewed in the system until the student graduates high school.

Who qualifies for the K-12 EASY Card?

  • All students who attend public or private school in Miami-Dade County are eligible for a K-12 EASY Card. Preschoolers ride free.
  • If the student attends school in Miami-Dade County but his or her parent or legal guardian live in another county, the student can still apply for a K-12 EASY Card. Proof of enrollment will be required. You can bring a current school picture identification card or a class registration schedule.
