The DC One Card is undergoing changes that will make it easier for students to use discounted fare cards to ride Metro’s buses and trains, according to The Washington Post.
Previously, students were required to get an application from their school, take it to District’s Department Of Transportation’s school transit subsidy office, and then complete the process at one of Metro’s sales offices.
Through the new process students K-12 will be able to use their DC One Card to enroll online and purchases/renew their passes at Metrorail stations. The process will be rolled out to D.C. schools this fall in phases.
The DC One Card is a single identification card that gives students access to DC government programs and facilities, recreation centers, libraries, and the Metro.
