Ride Free on Black Friday – November 25th!

Hey UC – We’re Reinventing Metro for You

The UC Metro EZ Ride Discount Program is available to University of Cincinnati students and staff to help them beat high gas prices and parking hassles associated with commuting to school, work, athletic events, shopping and socializing.

NEW! UC students and staff can now use Transit with EZfare to pay their Metro fare – no more cards.

And to prove there’s never been a better time to ride Metro, you can ride free for the first month of the Fall Semester! Your free ride ticket will show up in your account.

Here’s how to take advantage of this new convenience feature:

  • Download Transit with EZfare, free for Android and Apple devices.
  • Set up your account.
  • IMPORTANT: You must use your UC email address when setting up your account; otherwise, it will not work with the discount program.
  • If you already have a Transit with EZfare account set up using a different email address, you will need to set up a new one using your UC-assigned email address.

The EZ Ride Discount Program is free to eligible students and staff and can be used to ride anywhere Metro goes for only $1 – due to limitations in the app, you must purchase $1 ride tickets in bundles of two for $2.

Better deal: Purchase a half-fare day pass for only $2 for unlimited rides during the service day on all Hamilton County local service routes for even greater savings.

We’re going your way!
