Fare Reference Guide
Miami-Dade Transit (MDT) is a fare-based system that requires all patrons to pay the appropriate fare using cash or the appropriate fare loaded on an EASY Card.
Cash fares are only accepted on MDT buses and require exact change (no pennies). Patrons who pay with cash do not receive MDT transfer privileges, and must pay the full fare each time they board a transit vehicle.
Patrons using a valid EASY Card are eligible for transfers for a one-way trip within 3 hours of boarding the first vehicle.
Passengers must make sure to “tap” their EASY Card when exiting the Metrorail station to ensure that transfers to bus service are properly processed.
Multiple fares for more than one passenger cannot be paid with a single EASY Card. Each patron must have his or her own fare media.
Cash value on an EASY Card cannot be combined with cash at the bus farebox to pay the MDT fare.
All pass and fare purchase sales are final. No refunds are given for unused trips, fare media or balance transfers to EASY Cards.
Refunds and reimbursements are not issued for missed trips or connections. Terms and Conditions.

EASY Card/EASY Ticket
The EASY Card is a durable plastic fare card that can be loaded with cash value (up to $150) and multiple pass products (1 Monthly Pass, 7-Day Pass, 1-Day Pass).
The MDT fare collection system attempts to use the best value on an EASY Card to pay the fare, favoring a valid pass product over cash value, a monthly pass over a weekly pass, a weekly pass over a day pass.
EASY Cards issued since 2013 have a life span of 20 years. The EASY Card costs $2.
Register your EASY Card and receive balance protection if the card is lost or stolen. Registered cardholders only pay the cost of a replacement card. Report a lost or stolen card immediately to 305-891-3131 or 311 to limit unauthorized use.
Balances on unregistered EASY Cards are not replaced when lost or stolen.
Special passes, such as the Golden Passport, Patriot Passport, Discount Fare EASY Card and the K-12 Discount EASY Card, are only valid for use by the patron to whom the card was issued. Violations can result in the suspension of the issued cardholder from these programs. Report any loss or theft immediately to 305-891-3131 or 311.
