Transfers and Passes

 

M•CARD
Transfer
When you use Stored Cash Value on your M•CARD to ride, a 90-minute transfer is automatically added to your card for free. If paying with cash, you must have an M•CARD to receive the transfer. When transferring from a local route to a premium route, you will need to pay an additional 50 cents (regular or reduced fare). Read our M•CARD FAQs to learn more.
Ride MCTS App Transfer When you buy a ticket on the Ride MCTS app you can use it to get on any bus as long as you still have time left on the ticket. The ticket has a very prominent countdown clock. Once the time hits zero, the ticket will disappear from your ticket drawer and you’ll need to buy another ticket to ride again. Click here to learn more.
