MTA Commuter Bus Service is a vital link that connects thousands of Maryland’s suburban residents with jobs in Baltimore and Washington D.C. Commuter Bus operates weekdays during morning and evening rush hours, and is managed by private contractors with oversight from the MTA.
Ten-Trip tickets expire 6 months after date of purchase and are non-refundable. Monthly tickets are valid for one calendar month and are refundable, based on the return postmark date, as follows:
Postmarked prior to effective month: 100% refund
Postmarked 1st through 5th of effective month: 75% refund
Postmarked 6th through 10th of effective month: 50% refund
Postmarked after the 10th of effective month: 0% refund
The Metro fare portion of the Transit Link card ($111) is non-refundable once it has been used in the Metro system. Once a pass is used in the WMATA system, there will be a date printed on the face of the ticket across the small MARC/MTA logo, beneath the hole.
If your TLC ticket becomes demagnetized, ONLY WMATA can provide you with a substitute pass. These passes are ONLY available at Metro Center and the Pentagon Metro sales office.
