Zones
Metro operates service between designated Zones.  The fare for riding Metro is determined by the Zone you're riding in.  To ride from a Zone with a larger fare to a Zone with a smaller fare, pay the larger fare.  To ride from a Zone with a smaller fare to a Zone with a larger fare, first ask the driver for a Zone Check then pay the larger fare.

A Zone Check is your receipt for paying a higher fare.  When you exit the bus at your destination, the driver will collect your Zone Check.  If you do not have a Zone Check when exiting, the driver will charge the difference in fare between your starting and ending Zones.

Not sure which zone your stop is in?  Visit our Zone Map or find the PDF for your route on our Schedules page and look for the Zone listed at the top of each column and printed on each route map.
