Using The Platinum Pass Card

Valley Metro’s transit card is called the Platinum Pass. Platinum Pass can be used on all Valley Metro buses as well as Metro Rail.

Platinum Pass Users: Touch, Hold and Go Before Each Ride

We hope you are enjoying the Valley’s newest form of transportation, METRO light rail. Operating 365 days a year, 20 hours a day, METRO is a great way to commute.

Riding is fast and simple – just Touch, Hold, then Go!

To validate your Platinum Pass:

  • Touch the pass on the orange target.
  • Hold for the confirmation ding or until target light turns from yellow back to green.
  • Go enjoy your ride.

Failure to validate each time can result in fines of $50 to $500.
