If you do not renew by September 30th, your card will be disabled and will not work until it has been renewed.
Once you obtain your Discount Fare EASY Card, you must load the card with monetary value to ride at half fare whenever you board a bus or train, with a 1-Month Pass for $50, a 7-Day Pass for $13 or a 1-Day Pass for $2.50.
