As part of a new pilot program beginning Friday (July 1) and running through Dec. 31, Metro  riders with a TAP card loaded with a seven-day or 30-day pass will be able to ride DASH for free.

The project is part of the California Climate Investments, which use proceeds from the state’s cap-and-trade auctions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and provide benefits to communities around the state.

The DASH system — run by the city of Los Angeles — is a great way to make first-and-last mile connections to Metro. Here’s a list of all the lines at the DASH website and above is a system map.

  1. This is pretty awesome. I think Dash is such an underrated service. Personally, that is one of the benefits. Its clean, and its surgical. In example, catching a ride at James m Wood and Westmorland is pretty convenient! This could truly help the first mile last mile problem.

    I’ve had a discussion with a good bud of mine, and he always talks about how Los Angeles needs more small street cars for neighborhoods, but he fails to recognize the DASH, which to me is a bit more flexible; and CHEAP!

    If DASH ran later. Man life would be golden. I will be taking advantage of this!

    • Hi Marc;

      Yes! Those with Student 30-day passes can take advantage of this offer.

  2. Dash would be so much more useful if most of the lines didn’t run every 20-25 minutes…

  3. I have to agree, but they are still useful nonetheless. If I just need to make a quick one mile trip to Los Feliz village, Dash has been a proper alternative if I don’t want to pay $1.75 if I time it right. Same in Downtown, if I just need to simply make a 1 mile trip in the area, why pay the $1.75 when Dash can make that same trip.
