In March 2018, the Metro Board of Directors approved the elimination of tokens on the Metro transit system and in May 2018, all token purchases were stopped at Metro Customer Care Centers and phased out at TAP third party vendors. Metro is working closely with nonprofit and social service agencies to transition to TAP so they can continue providing transportation benefits to individuals and families in need.
Patrons who may still have tokens can use them to load a one-way trip on to a TAP card before Friday, Nov. 29, either onboard bus or at any TAP vending machine.
Customers can purchase and load TAP cards by going online at taptogo.net, by phone at 866.TAPTOGO, by visiting more than 450 participating vendor locations across Los Angeles County or at TAP vending machines located at all Metro Rail, Silver Line and Orange Line stations.
For more information on tokens, call 323.GOMETRO.
