    Riding the bus just got easier. Sun Metro continues to look over every aspect of operations to improve the quality of service while increasing operational efficiency. Students and children can now have access to bus service at a discounted rate, without the need of a Sun Metro identification card.

    • Children ages 6 to 18 do not need an I.D. (50 cents: Child Fare)
    • Students over 18 years must show a valid school I.D. *NO EXCEPTIONS* (50 cents: Student Fare)
    • Seniors and Disabled passengers will continue to use a Sun Metro identification card until further notice. (30 cents: Senior and Disabled Fare)
    COST SAVINGS
    • $5 Estimated cost to issue one Sun Metro I.D.
    • Over 7 thousand I.D.'s were issued in 2006 (cost = $35,000)
    • Over 16 hundred student I.D.'s were issued in 2006 (savings = over $8,000)
    • $3 charge for passenger to replace lost I.D.
