Where to buy passes:
Cincinnati Bell Connector streetcar tickets can be purchased on the FREE Cincy EZRide app available on Android and Apple smartphones and at ticket vending machines located at each of the 18 streetcar stations along the route. Streetcar tickets purchased at the TVMs will now come auto-validated and ready to use. However, unvalidated fare tickets can be purchased in advance from the Metro Sales Office. Customers must validate pre-purchased tickets at the TVM prior to boarding. 

If purchasing group passes in advance (quantities of 20 or more), you may purchase them at Metro's Sales Office at 120 E. 4th Street, Monday-Friday, 7 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Group passes validated for a specific date may be pre-purchased from Metro's sales office if ordered at least five days prior to travel (Note: 2-hour passes may only be order unvalidated and require validation at a ticket vending machine prior to use).

Fare Inspection:

The modern streetcars are designed to allow for quick and easy boarding and unboarding, that's why there are no fareboxes onboard. All fare payment is handled prior to boarding at ticket vending machines and on the Cincy EZRide app. 

Customers may be asked to present their valid tickets to fare inspectors riding the vehicles. Fare inspections are conducted on a random basis.

If a customer does not have a valid fare ticket, you may be fined:

  • Initial fine: $100
  • If delinquent: $200
  • If sent for collections: $275
