Timetables for all Metro buses will be back to normal schedule on Monday 30 January 2023.
The child fare now includes all children under 19. So, people 18 years and younger pay the child fare. On a metrocard this is $1.50 for each ride with a $3 cap/day. As a person’s date of birth is on their card the metrocards will automatically recognise who is eligible for a child fare.
Top up your metrocard. Online is the easiest way and you can setup an automatic top up with a minimum of $10
