The EASY Card is a durable, plastic reloadable fare card. It is part of Miami-Dade Transit’s automated fare collection system. It can contain both cash value and pass products (1-Month, 7-Day and 1-Day Pass) to pay your transit fare. EASY Cards issued since January 2013 have a 20 year life-span. Prior to 2013, issued EASY Cards have a 3 year life-span.
Visitors and people who are not frequent commuters can take advantage of the EASY Ticket. It is made of paper, and can also be used to pay your transit fare. EASY Tickets expire after 60 days.
“Smart Card” technology is installed on Metrobus fareboxes and Metrorail fare gates.
To ride Metrorail, you must use an EASY Card or EASY Ticket as the faregates do not accept cash. Metrobus fareboxes accept cash. You can pay with dollar bills and coins, quarters, dimes and nickels using exact change. Cash paying patrons do not receive transfer privileges and must pay a full fare each time they board a transit vehicle.
NOTE: Passengers are required to have their own EASY Card or EASY Ticket to use the Metrobus and Metrorail system. An EASY Card/Ticket is only valid for use by a single rider.
Is your EASY Card about to expire? Check your EASY Card expiration date.
Fraudulent use of an EASY Card or EASY Ticket can get you arrested. Violators are subject to prosecution on theft charges and face up to $500 in fines and/or 60 days in jail (Florida Statute 812.015).
Refunds: All sales are final. Refunds are not issued for unused trips on activated MDT passes (1-Month, 7-Day, 1-Day). Additionally, no refunds are issued on EASY Ticket purchases.
Delivery of EASY Cards ordered online
When placing an order online, you will receive an automatic email receipt shortly after your order is submitted. Please allow up to 15 days for the delivery of your EASY Card before contacting us. Miami-Dade Transit is not responsible for postal service delays.
NOTE: To ensure timely mail delivery, the last day to order a parking permit ($11.25) online with your monthly pass purchase is on the 22nd of the month for the following month’s permit. (For example, you must pay for the July parking permit by June 22th)
Parking permits ordered after the 22nd must be picked up at the Pass Sales Office at Overtown Transit Village (701 NW First Court, Suite 121—next to the Historic Lyric Theatre/Overtown Metrorail Station).
