If you or someone you know are 65 years and older, you qualify for a Reduced Fare Permit for Metro Transit. The permit allows seniors to purchase most tickets and passes for half the price of the regular adult fare. To purchase reduced-price fair, transit customers need a Reduced Fare Permit. In January, Metro representatives will be at various West St. Louis County Schnuck Markets to host public registration events for the Reduced Fare Permit.
Permits also can be obtained year-round between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays at the Downtown MetroRide Store, 701 Convention Plaza (at the corner of 7th and Washington avenues inside America’s Center).
Metro’s free Reduced Fare Permit can only be obtained in person. Seniors will be required to present a government-issued photo identification card that verifies their age, such as a driver’s license, passport, or state ID card. The permit will be mailed directly to the seniors’ homes and are valid for five years.
