K-12 Discount Program
What is the K-12 Discount Fare EASY Card?
- The specially-coded EASY Card allows registered students attending public or private schools in Miami-Dade County to receive a discounted fare for half off every ride on Metrobus and Metrorail.
- The $2 cost of the EASY Card is waived for approved students who apply for this special discounted fare program.
- The K-12 EASY Card can be loaded with a daily, weekly, or monthly pass. Users can also add cash value to the card. In order to add value to your card, visit any EASY Card Vending Machine located at all Metrorail Stations, or any EASY Card Sales Outlet.
- This unique card allows the owner to pay only half of the regular fare each time. That also means you can purchase daily, weekly, or monthly passes for 50% less than the regular price.
- All K-12 EASY Cards must be registered with Miami-Dade County; however, the card does not need to be renewed. It is renewed automatically by our system and is valid until the student graduates high school.

- All students who attend public or private school in Miami-Dade County are eligible for a K-12 EASY Card. Preschoolers ride free.
- If the student attends school in Miami-Dade County but his or her parent or legal guardian live in another county, the student can still apply for a K-12 EASY Card. Proof of enrollment will be required; either a current school picture identification card or a class registration schedule.
