Combined service from Foothill Transit and Metro makes it easy for you to pick a bus – any bus.

If you ride Foothill Transit’s Silver Streak or Metro’s Silver Line between El Monte Station and Downtown LA, your trips may be easier than ever before! That’s because Silver2Silver lets you ride whichever line you want — Foothill Transit Silver Streak or Metro Silver Line — with either your Foothill Transit or Metro pass. For a complete breakdown of the Silver2Silver fare structure, look at the chart below!

Next time you get to your bus stop, you can just hop on the first bus that arrives, tap your Metro or Foothill Transit pass, and you’re on your way!

If you don’t have a Silver Streak 31-Day Pass, we still have you covered. You can ride using your Adult Local 31-Day Pass with an upcharge of $1.25. If you’re riding with a discounted local pass between El Monte Station and Los Angeles (student, seniors, persons with disabilities), there is no upcharge; the ride is free with the pass.

Note: special promotional passes are not eligible for the Silver2Silver program.

The map below shows how Foothill Transit’s Silver Streak and Metro’s Silver Line combine to create one of the longest and fastest lines in the county. Foothill Transit and Metro passes may be used interchangeably at the shared stops between El Monte Station and downtown LA. The Metro 1-Day Pass is valid on the Silver Streak when boarding from LA heading east or when boarding from the El Monte Station heading west.
