Starting today, Metro customers will save up to 50 percent on selected passes through October 15. For the first time ever, Metro is launching a sales event that will allow riders to purchase discounted passes with unlimited trips on Metrorail and Metrobus whether you travel one day, one week, or one month.

During the sale, customers may purchase the 1-, 3-, and 7-day passes to use anytime. Monthly passes will be valid for use October 1-31.

“This is a great way to come back to work, restaurants, theater, museums, sports events and outdoor activities this fall with a pass that lets you ride at a deep discount,” said Metro General Manager Paul J. Wiedefeld. “We have also enhanced cleaning on buses and trains and improved the ventilation, making it safer and now more affordable for customers to give Metro a try.”

The pass sale, coincides with fare and service improvements that began on September 5, providing more buses and trains, lower prices and longer hours on weekends.

“Bringing back riders and attracting new ones will take bold action and doing things we have never done before,” said Metro Board Chairman Paul C. Smedberg. ” This first-ever pass sale and recent fare and service improvements are just the beginning and as a Board we will continue to pursue new ways to rebuild ridership.”
