LIFT Program

LIFT Program Beginning January 2, 2022!

The Low Income Fare Trips (LIFT) program is designed to assist members of the community with incomes at or below 150% of National Poverty Guidelines with their transportation needs. It is a self-certified, low-income program that will allow eligible riders up to four day passes per month.  Riders will have the ability to use one day pass per week, on the day of their choice.  Passes will be available on a first come, first served basis.  Initially, the program will offer 500 day passes per month.  Full fare and reduced fare riders are eligible to apply for the program.

Eligible persons:

  • Must self-certify that they meet the income requirements and complete the application form each month.
  • May receive up to four 1-day passes per month, loaded onto a smartcard, on a first come, first served basis.  Rides must all be used prior to receiving any additional day passes.
  • Pick up their smartcard from Green Bay Metro during regular operating hours.
  • *Reduced Fare – Must show proof of reduced fare eligibility—Medicare card, driver’s license/state ID (> 65), or reduced fare ID.

Applications can be filled out at Green Bay Metro or online at  

The initial smartcard will be provided at no cost and can be picked up from the passenger center during operating hours.   Any replacement cards will cost $3.00.   Passes will be loaded onto a GBM smartcard.  The LIFT program is intended to make available one free travel day per week or up to four free travel days over the course of a month and cannot be used on consecutive days.  Passes may be used Monday-Saturday during regular operating hours.   There are a limited number of passes available on a first served basis each month.  This program is intended for use by individuals, 18 years of age and older, and not agencies.  

LIFT passes are non-transferrable.  Green Bay Metro reserves the right to revoke participation in this program at any time.
