Reduced Fare Program FAQ
Is there a Reduced Fare monthly pass?
We don't offer Reduced Fare versions of any of our pass programs. The Reduced Fare pass is only compatible with one-way tickets, round trips and trip packages in multiples of 10 or 20. You can also load stored value (cash) at the cost of $1 per trip.
When does my Reduced Fare Breeze Card expire?
If you were issued a temporary card, your eligibility to participate in the Reduced Fare program will expire on December 31st of the current year. If you were issued a permanent card, your eligibility expires three years from the date of issue. When it does expire, you'll have to provide the same documentation you originally provided as proof of your qualifications.
Note: You can check the expiration date of your card at a Breeze Vending Machine, or make note of the card’s expiration date, which appears each time you tap your card at the rail station fare gate, at the bus fare box and at the Breeze Vending Machine
How do I use my Reduced Fare Breeze Card?
Your Reduced Fare Breeze Card functions the same way as any other Breeze Card. Simply tap your card on the Breeze target wherever your riding. In some cases you'll have to show your Reduced Fare Breeze Card to MARTA employees such as bus operators and rail station agents.
Also, only you are allowed to use your Reduced Fare Breeze Card. If anyone else is caught using your card, the card will be confiscated — and you will have to wait a minimum of 30 days before receiving a replacement.
