First ever “Art on TAP” cards now available at select TAP vending machines along A Line (Blue)

Metro’s first limited edition “Art on TAP” cards featuring artworks commissioned by Metro Art are launching exclusively on the A Line (Blue) this week. The initial three artwork designs will be The Journey Home by Eric Almanza, Last Stop by Jazmine Atienza and Kid by Angela Willcocks.

The artworks are portraits of A Line (Blue) riders created by local artists as part of a new series entitled More People Than You Know. The portraits evoke both intimate and universal stories of those who use this vital transit line. The entire series of twelve portraits is also featured on the new digital screens installed at each of the A Line (Blue) stations.
