Transit discounts for students available

Transit discounts

Registered K-12 students attending school full-time in Miami-Dade County can receive a 50 percent discount for every Metrobus and Metrorail ride. The $2 cost of the EASY Card is waived for qualifying students who apply for this discounted fare program.

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

Users 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 by our 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; either a current school picture identification card or a class registration schedule.
