The Mexico City Metro Card is officially known as the “Integrated Mobility Card.” It’s the only card you need, and often the only payment accepted, on the Mexico City Metro, Metrobús, and Ecobici.
The Metro Card:
The image on the reverse of the card indicates that with this card you can pay for fares on the Metro, Metrobús, Light Rail, Ecobici, Trolleybus, RTP buses, and on Cablebús.
Note: Passengers pay the price of the card, plus the balance you want available on your new card. So, if you pay 100 pesos total, you’ll receive a Metro Card with a balance of 85 pesos, after the price of the card is deducted from your total payment.
Your Metro Card can be refilled at any of the sales points mentioned above, i.e.; at any Metro station or Light Rail ticket window, or using the machines in Metrobús and Cablebús stations. There are also some private retailers around the city who will recharge your card.
