Ride, Respect & Relax

You have the power to make a positive difference in your community. Just remember that when you RIDE MTA, RESPECT everyone around you and RELAX to get there quickly, safely and enjoyably.

Take the MTA Pledge to RIDE, RESPECT and RELAX:

  • To honor your family, school, peers and community by showing leadership in word, deed and attitude.
  • To be careful when walking to a bus stop, be ready to board the bus before the bus arrives, and stay out of the street while waiting to board the school bus.
  • To present your fare or pass before riding.
  • To board the bus in a safe, calm and orderly manner, to move safely to your seat, and to keep entrances and exits clear.
  • To remember that the driver is in complete charge of the bus and students must respect his/her directions.
  • To talk in a normal manner without name-calling or loud, profane, or obscene language.
  • To not extend any part of your body through the bus windows, and to always consider your safety and that of others around you.
  • To not eat, drink, smoke, and play radios or tape recorders, or other music devices without headphones while in or on board MTA vehicles and facilities.
  • To respectfully discourage others who may engage in negative activity because you recognize this issue alone can jeopardize your safety and the safety of others.
  • To Ride, Respect and Relax.

Student Transit ID

Student Transit ID For K-12 Parochial and Private School Students

Whether you're new to school and ride MTA with your parents or you're an experienced rider and can ride by yourself, you can use the MTA Student ID card!

As a student with an MTA Student Transit ID card, you can pay a reduced Student Fare of just $1.30 per trip (with transfer privileges) when traveling to and from school. The Student ID card is issued to students by participating parochial and private schools, public schools in Baltimore County and some in Baltimore City.

Who can use the Student ID card?

Students in grades K- 12 attending day or night school can use the Student ID card.

When can I use the Student ID card?

If you go to school during the day, you can use the ID card to purchase the $1.30 Student Fare between the hours of 5:00 AM and 8:00 PM. If you are a night school student, you can use the ID card between the hours of 6:00 PM and 11:00 PM. Remember, the Student ID card is only valid for one school term. You will need to replace your ID card for each school term.

For example, if your school year begins in August, that is when you should ask for a new Student ID card; or if you go to school in the summer, you will need to ask for a new ID card at the beginning of summer school.

Where can I use my Student ID card?

You can use the Student ID card to pay for a Student Fare on all MTA local services: CityLink, LocalLink, Metro SubwayLink, and Light RailLink. If you travel on Express BusLink service, you will be charged the $1.30 Student Fare plus the 50 cent surcharge.

How do I get the Student ID card?

Visit your school’s office to request an MTA Student Transit ID card.

What if my school does not participate in the program?

Ask your school administrators to contact the MTA Reduced Fare Certification Office at 410-767-3441 or 410-767-4659, or TTY 410-333-2051. It is easy for schools to apply.

Rules for using the MTA Student ID card:

  • Present your ID card each time you pay for an MTA $1.30 Student Fare.
  • Each ID card is valid for the one time period circled on the front of the card, either 5:00 AM- 8:00 PM or 6:00 PM-11:00 PM. You can use the ID during the circled time period only.
  • The ID card is valid only for the school term printed on the front. The color of the card changes with each school year and for summer school. You will need to request a new MTA Student ID card each school year.
  • Your ID card must have your name, address, gender, the name of your school, and the date it was issued to you printed on the front. ID cards without this information will be confiscated by the MTA Operator or other MTA official and you will be required to pay the full fare to travel.
  • The expiration date (“Void After”) is printed at the bottom of each ID card.
  • Students can purchase the Student Fare any day schools are open and the MTA designates as an eligible school day. Usually student fares are not applicable on Saturdays, Sundays or holidays.
  • If you need to travel on more than one vehicle for your trip to or from school: on the first vehicle, you must request a Continuation Pass from the bus operator or Metro SubwayLink station manager to present as payment of fare for travel on the following vehicle. If your trip begins on Light RailLink, purchase your $1.30 Student Fare at the Light RailLink stop. To board the second vehicle, either swipe the ticket on the bus farebox or insert it into a Metro SubwayLink faregate.
  • Always be prepared to present your Student ID Card upon request by a Light RailLink Fare Inspector or MTA official.
  • At the beginning of each school year, to allow students ample time to obtain an MTA Student ID card, students are permitted to ride without the ID for the first few days of the school year.
  • If a student chooses to withdraw from a school, they are required to surrender their Student ID card to the school.
  • Students attending St. Elizabeth School in Baltimore are eligible to purchase the $1.30 Student Fare until completion of their education.
  • MTA Student Transit ID cards are non-transferable and subject to all MTA regulations.
S-Pass - Baltimore City Public School Students

Baltimore City Public School Students participating in the City’s schools sponsored Student Transportation Program are issued non-transferable monthly S-Passes and a Baltimore City Public Schools Student Transit Identification Card. 

To ride MTA local services students must show the Student Transit Identification Card and S-Pass to a Bus Operator, Metro SubwayLink attendant, or Light RailLink fare inspector. 

The student to whom the S-Pass and Transit Identification Card is issued is entitled to ride MTA Local Services on school days only between the hours of 5:00 AM and 8:00 PM, and agrees to observe and comply with the following policies:

  • The S-Pass is not valid on Saturdays, Sundays, holidays or days when schools are closed, including weather related closings. 
  • The identification card must contain the student’s name, age, gender, address, school name and last four digits of the S-Pass serial number.
  • If the ID and/or S-Pass are used by anyone other than the student to whom it was issued, they will be confiscated by the Bus Operator, Metro SubwayLink attendant, Light RailLink Fare Inspector or any MTA official, and the rider will be required to pay the full fare.
  • The Student Identification Card must be shown upon request to bus operators, station attendants, fare inspectors, or other MTA officials when using an S-Pass for travel.  

Safety

Stay alert, stay safe!
  • Bus Stop: On your way to your bus stop, keep as far away from traffic as possible. If there’s snow around, be extra careful, especially around ice and related debris.
  • Clothing: Wear bright colored clothing, especially if you’re waiting for the bus before sunrise or getting home after dark. Reflective tape on your hat and coat can help you stand out.
  • Boarding: Wait until your bus comes to a complete stop and the driver opens the door before you move toward it. Line up as you wait your turn to get on the bus.
  • Seating: Once you’re on the bus, please stay in your seat and face forward. Look around to see where the emergency door and windows are located.
  • Exiting: When you get off the bus, move far away from the vehicle to allow the driver to see that you have cleared the bus and are safely away from traffic. Stay way clear of the bus wheels at all times.
  • Awareness: Be aware of other traffic in the area. Don’t assume that traffic will stop for you or even that drivers will see you. Look both ways when you cross the street until you’re safely on the other side. Please!
