Overview

Riding MET is convenient and easy. Fares, passes and 10 ride tickets can be purchased online by visiting TouchPass, by downloading the TouchPass app from Google Play or the Apple App Store, by contacting the the MET office at 406-657-8218, or by visiting the MET office in person.

When boarding the bus, simply touch your TouchPass smart card to the card reader or hold your phone in front of the reader camera.  The reader will give a green light for valid fares and a red light for invalid fares.  



Discounted Fares

All passengers age six or older must either pay the appropriate fare, or use a ride pass or transfer. Citizens who are age 62 and above or who have a disability may ride by paying a discounted fare. Citizens of qualifying age must present proof of age (such as an ID displaying a birthdate); individuals with a disability will be required to obtain a Disability Identification Card from MET Transit in order to pay the discounted cash fare.  TouchPass users may have their account updated to display discounted fares once verification of age or disability is complete. To verify eligibility for a Disability Identification Card or a discounted fare, a passenger may present their Medicare card or other proof of eligibility. Students age 19 or older must present a valid student ID to pay the decreased fare.  Proof of eligibility may be provided in person at the MET office or by completing this form and uploading a copy of the verification.

Unlimited-Ride Passes

Buying one of the various unlimited ride passes allow for unlimited rides in a defined period. A day pass allows unlimited rides in a single day while a 31-day pass allows you unlimited rides for a 31-day period.  Both periods start when passes are first activated.

Fare-Capping

 
Passengers who choose to utilize TouchPass and use the "Stored Value" option to pay single ride fares are subject to an additional benefit called "Fare Capping."  Fare capping allows a rider who pays for individual one-way rides to be automatically upgraded to an unlimited ride pass once they have paid for enough rides to equal the cost of the unlimited ride pass.  For example, an adult passenger who purchases two (2) one-way rides at $2.00 each would automatically be upgraded to a "Day Pass" unlimited ride pass for the duration of the day since they have already paid $4.00 for two rides (the same cost as a day pass).  Another example would be a passenger who qualifies for the Senior/Disability rate paying for twelve (12) one-way rides at $1.00 each; this passenger would be upgraded to a 31-day unlimited ride pass upon reaching the $12.00 value by paying for single rides.  The fare capping unlimited ride pass begins from the moment the individual makes the first single fare payment.  For further information, please contact the MET at 406-657-8218.
