See if you qualify for Reduced Fare

Reduced fares are available for persons over age 65, those with a disability, Medicare recipients, and those who meet income qualifications. In order to use the reduced fare items (cash, 24-hour passes, 10-ride cards or 31-day passes), you must show a Topeka Metro Reduced Fare ID card to the bus operator when boarding and paying your fare.


To obtain the Topeka Metro Reduced Fare ID card, you must complete an application, which can be downloaded by clicking on the document links below. Applications can also be picked up at Quincy Street Station (820 SE Quincy St.) or mailed out to you upon request by calling 785-783-7000. Those completing an income form must have a social service agency authorize the form prior to submitting it to Metro.


Replacement IDs must be obtained where you originally got the card. Initial IDs are free of charge, however, there is a replacement fee of $2.00 if lost, damaged, or stolen within the first year. There is no replacement fee for cards from normal wear and tear after the first year.  ID’s are valid for three years.
