Metro is Converting All Remaining Senior and Disabled Patron Paper Passes and Stamps to TAP Cards Beginning Dec. 26, 2010


Tuesday November 16, 2010

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) is converting all remaining paper passes and stamps for seniors and disabled patrons to a plastic Transit Access Pass (TAP) card. All seniors and disabled pass holders who have not applied for a TAP card are encouraged to apply now as paper passes and stamps are being discontinued.

TAP applications are available on line at or at the Metro Customer Centers in Baldwin Hills/Crenshaw area, 3650 Martin Luther King Blvd, Ste 101B, in East Los Angeles, 4501 B. Whittier Blvd, at Union Station/Gateway Plaza, One Gateway Plaza, and in the Wilshire/La Brea area at 5301 Wilshire Blvd.

Metro's conversion of Senior and Disabled passes to the TAP card began in January of this year.

To date over 70 percent of senior and disabled pass holders have converted to TAP cards.
