Metro Brief: All DCPS students required to have DC One Card

District of Columbia

On January 1, 2012

Beginning January 1, 2012, eligible students at all DCPS high schools and middle schools will need a DC One Card to access transit subsidy passes. The DC One Card is a single identification card that gives students access to D.C. government programs and facilities, recreation centers, libraries, and the Metro. Students in high and middle schools should automatically receive a DC One Card at their school.

Students and parents may begin applying online for the school transit subsidy program at, which provides reduced fares for District students who use Metrobus, Metrorail or the DC Circulator to travel to and from school.

Students and parents are advised not to wait until school resumes after the holidays to apply for the transit subsidy program as this may cause a delay in receiving the benefits.

If students do not have a DC One Card, they should contact their school's main office immediately to let them know a card is needed in order to access student travel subsidies. The same requirement will also apply to all DCPS K-5 schools and all DCPS educational campuses beginning on January 16.

If students have not received their DC One Card they should immediately contact the principal's office at their school. Students in K-5 and education campuses will have to go to a DC One Card Customer Service Center to obtain a DC One Card. For more information: or by calling 202-671-2273.
