For the purposes of Metrobus's operations, the city has been divided into concentric zones, radiating out from the CBD. There are currently six zones, with most of the routes starting from the inner city points in Zone 1. The number of zones a commuter crosses determines the fare.
- Zone 2: From the corner of Jan Smuts Avenue and Empire Road in Braamfontein to the corner of Jan Smuts Avenue and Tyrwhitt Road in Rosebank.
- Zone 3: From the corner of Jan Smuts Avenue and Tyrwhitt Road in Rosebank to Craighall Park.
It is cheaper to use prepaid tags rather than pay cash. The different coloured Metrobus tags are similar to prepaid phone cards and can be bought at Computicket outlets at Rosebank Mall.
The cost per trip from Joburg CBD to Rosebank is R8.80. Ten trips will cost R54.40, and 44 will also cost R54.40! The fare costs the same from Rosebank to Sandton.
