Real change, not loose change
Look around. Just about everyone is moving to TAP (Transit Access Pass), L.A. County's new fare payment system.
While not a pass in itself, the TAP card is an important innovation for L.A. County transit riders. The durable plastic card contains a smart chip that allows you to buy and electronically load Metro passes, participating regional and local transit line passes, electronic cash, or any combination of the three. In other words, TAP becomes your "transit fare wallet" – holding your passes and cash, paying fares to the exact penny, and freeing you up from carrying around loose change. It even recognizes free transfers!
And your TAP card will only get better over time. Because of its state-of-the-art smart chip technology, TAP allows Metro and other L.A. County regional and local transit lines to look to the future, finding modern new ways to deliver an improved transit experience. Someday soon, don't be surprised to find your TAP card paying dividends through special incentives/discounts, promotional offers and loyalty rewards. Now that's the kind of change we all like to see.
