Students get discounted bus fares with Metro card

Cincinnati State has renewed an agreement with the Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority that provides discounted rates to students on many bus routes.

  • The program allows students to swipe a special Cincinnati State-Metro discount card and then pay just $1 to ride Metro in any zone, with a transfer for just 50 cents. This is a significant discount over regular Metro fares.

To get the discount card, students must log into MyCState, choose MyServices, and click on Transportation. Students must have a valid SurgeCard to order a Metro card.

  • The Metro card is free, and is mailed to students within three to five business days after requesting it.
  • The Metro discount card will be issued only to students who are currently enrolled.
  • Metro scanners will not accept standard Cincinnati State ID cards (Surge Card)

The card is valid for one semester only. Requests for Fall Semester Metro cards can be submitted now on MyServices.

For more information, see the "Buses & Public Transportation" page of the College website.
