A few tips for riding Metro during FYF:
- Valid fare is required to ride Metro Rail and everyone must TAP before each boarding.
- To avoid long lines to buy fares on the return trip home, load a $5 Day Pass (good until 3 a.m.) or extra cash value at the beginning of the trip instead.
- One-way fare is $1.50 and does not include transfers to other lines. A trip using Red and Gold Lines will cost $3.
- If using more than one line, buy a $5 Day Pass to save time and money.
- All fares are loaded onto a reusable TAP card that costs $1, TAP cards can be purchased at all Metro Rail and Orange Line stations.
