The EASY Card is a durable plastic reloadable fare card. It is part of Miami-Dade Transit's automated fare collection system. Fareboxes with "smart card" technology are installed on buses and fare gates at all Metrorail stations.
Visitors and people who are not daily commuters can take advantage of the EASY Ticket. It works like the EASY Card, but expires after 60 days and is made of paper.
To ride Metrorail, you must use an EASY Card or EASY Ticket as the faregates do not accept cash. Metrobus fareboxes still accept cash, and you can pay using dollar bills, quarters, dimes, and nickels.
NOTE: Each customer is required to have their own EASY Card/EASY Ticket to use the Metrobus and Metrorail system. It is not possible to "pass back" an EASY Card/Ticket among various people and deduct multiple trips for multiple riders.
Is your EASY Card about to expire? Check your EASY Card expiration date.
Fraudulent use of an EASY Card or 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 (Monthly, 7-Day, 1-Day). Additionally, no refunds are issued on EASY Ticket purchases.

What's an EASY Ticket?
The EASY Ticket is a paper ticket that is good for only 60 days. The EASY Ticket can only be reloaded with the original fare product that was placed on it (either cash value or a daily or weekly pass).
EASY Tickets cannot be purchased or reloaded online or by telephone. They can only be purchased at ticket vending machines at any Metrorail station, at EASY Card sales outlets or at the Transit Service Center at the Government Center Metrorail station. EASY Tickets can be reloaded only at sales outlets or at ticket vending machines.Back to Top Page Last Edited: Wed Dec 4, 2013 10:12:48 AM
