Disability Picture ID Bus Card

In an effort to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 (coronavirus) on our consumers, clients, and staff, you must make an appointment, prior to coming to The Independence Center, to meet with a staff member about getting a Disability Photo ID Bus Card. Our staff can work with you by phone (719-471-8181) or email (info@the-ic.org) to tell you what documentation you need to bring. Our regular business hours are 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. on Friday. Mountain Metro Transit (MMT) is allowing a Medicare Card as an acceptable form of ID on fixed route buses to get the reduced fare..

Receive a reduced rate with Mountain Metro Transit with a Disability Picture ID Bus Card! The IC is the only issuing agency working with the City of Colorado Springs Transit Services for this card.

Getting one is simple:

1. Visit The Independence Center’s front desk from 8:00 AM—3:30 PM, Monday—Friday.

2. Bring your up-to-date state ID and one of the following as proof of disability:

  • Your Social Security Insurance (SSI) or Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) award letter;
  • Medicare card (Medicaid is not accepted);
  • Med 9 Form (obtained from Colorado Department of Human Services);
  • VA Disability letter showing a 50% or more disability.

3. Have your photo taken for your card.

4. If you have the proper certification, you will leave with your new card.
