L.A. Metro converting to TAP cards

Posted on February 18, 2009

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s (Metro) reusable Transit Access Pass (TAP) fare cards will officially replace paper day passes, beginning March 15, for daily transit use on the Metro bus and rail system.

 

TAP is the new electronic fare payment system that will eventually unify all of Los Angeles County’s transit operators through a single, reusable payment card. 

 

Metro will provide a complimentary TAP card to transit customers, if they do not already have one, when they buy a $5 day pass on board a Metro Bus until April 11 or while supplies last. Transit patrons are encouraged to keep and reuse their cards because they can be reloaded with additional fare value. Blank TAP cards will cost $2 thereafter. 

 

 “This new program combines the ease of our day pass with the convenience of our new TAP card,” said Roger Snoble, Metro CEO.
