How to use EZfare in the Transit app>>

Use Cash to Purchase Mobile Tickets

Bus riders now can use cash to purchase mobile tickets for trips on Metro and the Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky (TANK) thanks to the launch of a new stored value option across the EZfare payment system used by Metro, TANK and 12 other agencies across Ohio, Kentucky and Michigan. 

With the new stored value feature, you can add funds to your EZfare mobile ticketing account, which can then be used to buy mobile tickets when needed. These mobile tickets can be displayed directly on your smartphone when boarding the bus.

Funds can be added via credit card in the Transit app, or with cash at the Metro/TANK Sales Office (120 East Fourth Street, Mercantile Center Arcade, Cincinnati, Ohio).
