All-door boarding allows customers to board a bus at any door with their TAP cards and allows for faster boarding, shorter stops and increased reliability. The program is expanding to include Metro Rapid 720 starting Sunday, Oct. 14.
How does all-door boarding work?
- Buy and load a TAP card.
- Enter through any door.
- Tap your card at the validator inside the bus.
Look for these decals on buses in order to board at any door:
If you’re paying with cash, you’ll need to board at the front of the bus to purchase and load a TAP card. A valid TAP card is required to ride on all-door boarding lines. Make the ride smoother by having a TAP card ready. When you use a TAP card, you get a free 2-hour transfer to any Metro bus or rail line traveling in the same direction to help you complete your trip.
TAP cards can be purchased and reloaded:
- At the front of the bus
- Online at taptogo.net
- By calling 866.TAPTOGO
- At over 400 TAP vendor locations
- At TAP vending machines, located at Metro Rail, Metro Silver Line and Metro Orange Line stations
