Before you can load a pass on TAP, you need to have the appropriate TAP card. A reusable TAP card for regular fare riders can be obtained four ways:
- At Metro Customer Centers and at over 400 vendor locations around town including Ace Cash Express, Continental Currency Services, Inc., and selected Ralphs California check cashing stores. To find a location near you, please check taptogo.net .
- Online at taptogo.net . Your card will be mailed to you.
- From TAP vending machines at all Metro Rail and Metro Orange Line stations.
- Onboard Metro buses, Day Passes available for purchase with new TAP card for $8.
If you are a Senior, Person with disabilities, Medicare, College/Vocational or K-12 Student rider, you may qualify for a reduced fare, but you’ll need a special TAP card. For details and applications, please go to metro.net/reducedfares.
Note: TAP cards are sold together with fare products only; blank cards are not available.
