Where to find Metro Art’s special Art on TAP Cards!

Art on TAP cards are Metro’s smallest artworks that fit inside pockets and accompany transit riders on their journeys. To commemorate the 20th anniversary of Metro Art’s Through the Eyes of Artists poster series, a limited edition set of Art on TAP cards will be available for purchase rolling out this week. In the tradition of colorful travel destination posters, the artworks are part of an award-winning series by 63 local artists that illustrate the unique places accessible by Metro across L.A. County.

We’ve got five Art on TAP cards in the set:

  1. 4 of 5 Customer Service Centers are located next to a Metro Rail Stop. Would be great if the East LA CSC were located adjacent to the East LA Civic Center Station on the E Line.
