Los Angeles MTA implements regional transit pass

Posted on August 15, 2002

The Los Angeles County MTA and other local municipal bus operators launched the Regional EZpass, the country's first regional pass program, to provide riders with seamless transit service throughout Los Angeles County. Beginning in September, transit riders will have the option of using the monthly pass for unlimited travel on the MTA bus and rail systems and on the fixed-route systems of 11 municipal bus operators. The participating systems are: Culver City Municipal Bus Lines, Foothill Transit, Montebello Bus Lines, Gardena Municipal Bus Lines, Commerce Municipal Bus Lines, Long Beach Transit, Norwalk Transit, Santa Monica's Big Blue Bus, Torrance Transit, Santa Clarita Transit and the Los Angeles Department of Transportation. Combined, all 12 systems operate 386 bus lines and serve nearly 31,000 bus stops. The pass will be priced at $58 for a regular monthly pass and $29 for seniors and the disabled. The pass does not replace the individual transit operator passes that will continue to be available. The cost of the program for fiscal year 2003 will be about $2 million, paid for with local transit sales tax funds.
