Token Elimination

Metro token sales will end May 15, 2018

Why are tokens being phased out?

The use of TAP cards has caused Metro tokens to become obsolete. As token use continues to decline, TAP cards have proven to be a viable, cost effective replacement that enables simpler, safer travel throughout LA County.

When is the last day I can use tokens?

Friday, November 29, 2019 is the last day you can use tokens on Metro.

Can I still use my tokens at other agencies?

No, tokens will be phased out on the following agencies that still accept tokens: Access Services, Culver CityBus, LADOT, Long Beach Transit, Montebello Bus Lines, Monterey Park Spirit Bus, Norwalk Transit and Torrance Transit.

What will replace tokens?

TAP cards will replace tokens. Loading fare onto a TAP card is the safest and most convenient way to travel throughout LA County.
