The EASY Card is Tri-Railâ€™s automated fare collection system! With the EASY Card, users can add cash value up to $150 to pay one-way fares, or load the card with all of Tri-Railâ€™s different fare products including the Monthly, 12-trip or Weekend passes.
The EASY Card contains an embedded computer chip that automatically deducts the appropriate fare when users tap the card on any of the validators that are clearly marked and located on all station platforms. Think of the Tri-Rail EASY Card as a debit card that can be used to pay a transit fare. Itâ€™s a fast, easy and convenient way to pay!
In an effort to create seamless regional travel in South Florida, Tri-Rail has partnered with Miami-Dade Transit to use the EASY Card as the preferred way to pay transit fare. The EASY Card is valid for use on both Tri-Rail and Miami-Dade Transit, including Metrorail and Metrobus.
With the EASY Card, users can enjoy these great benefits:
CONVENIENCE â€“ The EASY Card benefits Tri-Rail passengers in many ways and simplifies taking transit by creating a seamless and universal way to pay fares. Passengers never have to worry about carrying cash when taking a trip.
FREE BALANCE PROTECTION – When a user registers an EASY Card, it allows for free card protection against loss or theft. If the card is ever lost or stolen, a transfer of the balance from the old card to a new replacement card can be issued with only a nominal $2 card replacement fee.
