HOUSTON (KTRK) -- METRO offers 50 percent discount on all bus and light-rail service for students, seniors, Medicare cardholders and the disabled.
Now, METRO has expanded the RideStore hours to help students apply for their Student Q-Fare Card. The RideStore is open weekdays through August 28, 8 a.m. until 6 p.m., and on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Students and parents will need to verify student enrollment at the time of purchase. K-12 students can bring current school ID, class schedule, enrollment form or report card on school letterhead. Full-time college students can bring current class schedule (showing credit hours) and a fee receipt, letter from the college verifying (current) full-time status. Middle and high school students may pay the discounted fare in cash (on the bus only) by showing their student ID card. Elementary school students may pay the discounted fare in cash (on the bus only) without showing an ID.
