Urban fares

Metro’s urban network is divided into zones, and urban Adult fares relate to how many zones you travel within: 1 Zone2 Zones, or All Zones.

  • 1 Zone fares can be used within a single zone only, without crossing a zone boundary.
  • 2 Zones fares can be used to travel between two zones, crossing one zone boundary.
  • All Zones fares can be used to travel between more than two zones.

Student and Concession customers pay a flat fare regardless of the number of zones travelled.
