Enhanced ID – Bus Access

The Enhanced ID program provides students with unlimited access to the NFTA Metro Bus and Rail System. Enhanced IDs are required to utilize any NFTA services; a regular photo ID or class schedule will not be accepted as valid fare on the bus or rail. Pick up enhanced IDs at City campus beginning the first day of classes, or have your ID shipped to North or South campus if that is more convenient.
