ICYMI: starting July 15, transfers between most TAP-participating agencies will be exclusively on TAP, and Metro Day Pass sales will be discontinued on buses — you’ll be able to load your TAP card with up to $20 in Stored Value instead. Metro Day Passes can still be purchased at TAP vending machines, online at taptogo.net, by calling 866.TAPTOGO, at Metro Customer Centers and at 400+ vendor locations throughout L.A. County.
There are a few more changes that will also go into effect on Sunday, July 15:
TAP cards will cost $2 at all locations.
The change makes the cost of TAP cards consistent across the board. The $2 price will also encourage people to retain their cards, which now have a 10-year lifespan. Reduced Fare Senior, Disabled, K-12 Student and College/Vocational TAP cards will still be free with application.
TAP vending machine enhancements:
Stored Value can now be added in any amount.
Stored Value can now be added in $1 increments, with a maximum of $60 per transaction. Use Stored Value to pay for single rides on all TAP-participating transit agencies. You can also use it to transfer between TAP-participating transit agencies within 2.5 hours of your first trip.
Buy multiple TAP cards loaded with a Metro 1-Day Pass.
You can now purchase up to five TAP cards in one transaction, each loaded with a Metro Day Pass. Each passenger must have their own TAP card. For future use, each card must be reloaded individually.
EZ transit passes are now available
EZ transit passes can now be purchased at TAP vending machines. They are monthly, calendar-based passes that good for local and express travel on most transit agencies throughout L.A. County. Call your local agency to confirm which zone is needed for your trip.
