A flat premium fare of $2.45 or two fare zones is charged (which is a different fare structure from other Metro routes). Metro Day Pass holders may use the service without paying any additional charges, which is a mitigation to passengers who now have to transfer to the Silver Line.
Metro Silver Line riders can now use their Metro day pass, 7-day pass, or 30-day pass on the Silver Streak for a boarding between Downtown Los Angeles and El Monte Station. Likewise, Silver Streak riders can now use their Foothill 31-day passes on the Metro Silver Line between Downtown Los Angeles and El Monte Station. The program allows Metro Silver Line riders and Foothill Transit's Silver Streak riders to ride the Silver Streak bus or the Metro Silver Line with either the Foothill Transit 31-Day Pass or the Metro 30-Day, 7-Day or Day Pass between the Silver 2 Silver bus corridor. The program only applies between Downtown Los Angeles and El Monte Station, although Foothill Transit riders can now use their foothill 31-day pass and ride the Metro Silver Line all the way from El Monte Station to Harbor Gateway Transit Center. Metro provides a subsidy to Foothill Transit to make up the 30-cent difference using funds from the Metro Express Lanes toll charge. The program will be reviewed in October 2013 and will be made permanent if it is deemed to be a success.
The following table shows the Metro Silver Line fares as of July 25, 2011 (in US dollars). Since the Metro Silver Line runs almost entirely on the freeway, its fare is higher than the Metro Rail Lines, Metro Local/Rapid/Express/Shuttle Lines and Metro Orange Line. All payments are made on board the Metro Silver line bus. At the moment, there are no ticket vending machines for the Metro Silver Line, but Metro expects to begin installing them soon. As part of the Silver 2 Silver bus program, Foothill Transit passengers can ride the Metro Silver Line using their Foothill Silver Streak 31-day pass only between the Silver corridor which is between El Monte Station and Downtown Los Angeles. The program began on October 14, 2012 for a one year implementation.
