Steps to Getting Fares and Passes

One-way bus fares must be paid upon boarding the bus.  Exact change is required.  For Light Rail and Metro Subway, one-way or roundtrip tickets must be purchased from ticket vending machines located in rail stations.  Bills in the denomination of $1, $5, $10 and $20 are accepted by ticket vending machines.

Customers may purchase a Day Pass from any bus operator or from any Light Rail or Metro Subway ticket vending machine which allows unlimited travel from the time of purchase until 3 AM the following day.

Weekly and Monthly passes are also available from Light Rail and Metro Subway ticket vending machines, the MTA Transit Store located at 6 St. Paul Street in downtown Baltimore and many pass sales outlets.  To see a list of pass sales outlets, click here.
