To board Brio you must be at a designated Brio station. Brio vehicles will ONLY stop at designated Brio stations. Fixed-route buses will NOT stop at Brio stations.
Regular, fixed-route bus stops are located near each Brio station to allow passengers to transfer onto Brio or the fixed route.
Buy a one-way trip, a day pass, a weekly pass or a monthly pass from the ticket vending machine located at all permanent Brio stations.
Board the Brio bus at any of the three doors.
To prevent fare evasion, Brio Ambassadors will be monitoring and requesting proof of payment during your trips on Brio. Please be prepared to show your ticket or pass along with a valid ID if you are paying a reduced fare.
Use our free Wi-Fi on the bus, read a book, text with friends or just relax.
Select the type of fare you would like to purchase using the screen on the machine.
Insert cash, coins or use a debit/credit card.
Take your pass/change and prepare to board Brio.
REMEMBER: You must be prepared to show your fare and a valid ID—if using a reduced fare—to any Brio Ambassadors during your trips on Brio. Failure to show a valid pass may result in repercussions.
Sun Metro loves our two-wheeled friends and we want to inform cyclists how to ride Brio with your bicycle:
Board with your bicycle through the back door.
Hook your front tire onto the top of the bike rack.
Place your rear tire in the slot and wrap the provided strap around the tire.
El Paso is experiencing a premier form of transportation known as the Rapid Transit System, or RTS. Sun Metro broke ground on the first of four RTS corridors, which introduced El Pasoans to a high quality transit service that offers similar benefits to light rail transit, such as improved speed and reliability, but at a much lower implementation cost.
RTS uses modern, rubber-tire, high capacity vehicles; improved fare collection systems and controlled traffic signals to move riders more efficiently. Ultimately, Sun Metro passengers using the RTS will not only save money and reduce their carbon footprint, they will get to their destinations faster.
This new system is known as the Sun Metro Brio with unique amenities, including: uniquely branded 60-foot articulated buses in mixed traffic; a frequency of 10 minutes (peak service) to 15 minutes (off-peak service); stations that are about a mile apart; branded and landscaped stations with improved pedestrian amenities and signal prioritization (lengthen green traffic signals).
El Paso's first innovative, faster and more effective transportation option, Mesa Brio, began in fall 2014 with the introduction of the Mesa corridor.
