What Is The K-12 Discount Fare EASY Card?

Have a child who is currently enrolled in a Miami-Dade County school between the grades of K-12?  There is a discount for that.  The specially coded EASY Card allows students who attend public, charter or private schools in the County to receive a K-12 discounted fare –half off every trip!

Getting your hands on this card is simple. Fill out an online application and include information such as school name and projected graduation year. The card is renewed automatically by our system and is valid until the student graduates high school.

Who qualifies for the K-12 EASY Card?

All students who attend public or private school in Miami-Dade County are eligible for a K-12 EASY Card. Preschoolers ride free.

If the student attends school in Miami-Dade County but his or her parent or legal guardian live in another county, the student can still apply for a K-12 EASY Card. Proof of enrollment will be required; either a current school picture identification card or a class registration schedule.

How do I apply for the K-12 EASY Card?
