Metro will hold a public hearing on January 17, 2018 to receive community input in preparation for Transfer on 2 nd Boarding. Transfer on 2 nd Boarding refers to the board-approved policy for customers transferring between agencies. This approved policy (1) eliminates the need for paper transfers by allowing transfers to be automatically deducted from Stored Value on a TAP card upon the second boarding, and (2) extends the transfer eligibility time from 2 hours to 2.5 hours from the first boarding. These approved changes are planned for Spring 2018.
To prepare customers for Transfer on 2 nd Boarding, the Metro Board of Directors will be asked to consider the following changes:
- Replace Day Pass sales with Store Value sales onboard Metro buses
- Transition token users to TAP
- Implement a consistent $2 TAP card price to customers across all purchase points
The public is encouraged to attend this hearing and comment on the proposals. Public hearing details are as follows:
Wednesday, January 17, 2018 at 1PM
Metro Headquarters, Board Room
One Gateway Plaza, Los Angeles, CA 90012
The public hearing will commence at the listed time and will close after all oral testimony has been received by those members of the public present.
Persons unable to attend the hearing may submit written testimony postmarked through midnight January 17, 2018, the close of the public record.
