March is also Women’s History Month and today Metro released commemorative TAP cards for purchase at Metro Customer Centers — click here for locations and hours. Cards are $2 each, plus the cost of fare.
The cards will be available while supplies last.
We also thought this was a good chance to highlight one of Metro’s efforts to expand opportunities for women — our Women Build Metro LA program to get more women into construction jobs. To learn more about opportunities in the construction trades, please visit http://www.metro.net/pla or call the Metro PLA/CCP Hotline at (888)-887-3674.
And below is a nice video reminder of the women who decades ago were at the forefront of creating more opportunities for women in L.A.’s transit industry.

Nice “artistic” tribute to so many different women of color who have been overlooked by “majority” society. Please ask the artist, though, which one represents the indigenous women on whose land the Metro building stands? Was it purely “artistic license” or is the city still sore that indigenous people tore down the statue of Father Serra that once stood across from Union Station? Sign me: “My beloved late father sleeps with the Tlingit People.”
Please put these new, limited edition TAP cards out where more people can find them and not just in East and South LA. There are women riding on the EXPO and the Red lines too.
