For 12- to 18-year-olds, a Metro ride to work, school, after school activities, to hook up with friends, or even to volunteer, is half the cost of regular bus fare. If you are 12 to 18 years old, you can ride The Metro for just 75 cents, but first you must get a Youth Reduced Farecard. Whether you pay with cash or a 31-Day Bus Pass, without the ID, be ready to pay full price. For 6 to 11 year olds, the ride is also 75 cents but a Youth Reduced Farecard is not necessary.
