EZ Transit Pass Customers Can Transition to TAP

By EGPNews

Starting Sept. 1, people who use the paper EZ transit pass — the monthly pass good for travel on 25 different public transit carriers throughout Los Angeles County — can transition to the reusable and reloadable TAP card.

TAP cards make it easier to travel without transfers, renew passes each month and replace r cards, should they be lost of stolen, according to a Metro news release. The blue TAP card is for regular riders; the orange Reduced TAP ID card is for senior and/or disabled riders, both can be electronically reloaded. A stamp with the month, year and zone designation will be affixed to the front of each card so that the card can be visually inspected on non-TAP systems.

For a limited time, the new reusable TAP cards will be free with the purchase of an EZ transit pass. Applications can be downloaded from the web at metro.net/riding/fares/senior, and are available at all Metro Customer Centers and pass sales outlets.
