To support the Lakers 2020 playoff run, Metro will be distributing commemorative Lakers TAP cards at select bus stops and rail stations in the next few days.
Many of the cards — which are loaded with a day pass — will be distributed in low-income and underserved neighborhoods by our law enforcement partners at the LAPD, L.A. Sheriff’s Department and Long Beach PD, all of whom help patrol the Metro system. The Lakers will also be giving some of the cards to our local Boys and Girls Clubs.
This is part of Metro’s and the Lakers’ ongoing efforts to give back to local communities and do a little something extra surprising for the riders and communities that we serve.
The cards are being handed out as part of a season-long partnership between Metro and the Lakers to promote taking transit to games. While the NBA Playoffs are in Florida this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re eager for the day that games resume at STAPLES Center.
If out and about or making an essential trip, you will also see our buses and trains wrapped in Lakers colors. It should continue be a fun week of basketball in the Southland. Metro congratulates the Lakers for making it this far.
