Buy a Flamingo Card

If you prefer to use a physical card, you can purchase one from any PSTA Customer Service Center! Cards are reusable and reloadable and cost $3 at any PSTA Customer Service Center. During this promotion from 3/21/22 - 5/31/22, the $3 new card fee will be waived on all new Flamingo Fares card purchases when you load a minimum of $20! 

Once you purchase your card, be sure to visit to register, protect your balance, and easily reload your card! Keep in mind—to take advantage of daily and monthly caps, you must use only ONE payment method (either the card or the app).
