LA County Transit Subsidy Program

 

Overview

Depending on where you live, you may be eligible for a special discount on your transit pass. The County of Los Angeles contracts with Metro to sell 30-day passes at reduced rates to eligible seniors, persons with disabilities, and students who live in the unincorporated areas of the County. If you are a resident of these areas you may be eligible for a discounted Metro Pass. Regular Metro 30-Day Passes and EZ transit passes are also available to unincorporated County residents who reside in the First, Second, Fourth, and Fifth Supervisorial Districts. In the Areas Served section, see a complete list of  Unincorporated Supervisorial Districts .

How to Apply

Apply in person at any Metro Customer Center.

Eligible candidates include:
Senior 62+/Disabled/ Medicare and Student ( K-12 or College/Vocational ).

The first step is to complete a residency certification form at a Metro Customer Center. Once residency approval is given, an eligibility certification form will be issued. Use this form to buy your 30-day pass at any Metro Customer Center for up to one calendar year. Re-certification of residency is done only on a yearly basis.

Proof of residency can be provided with: current utility bill, credit card bill, bank statement with name and address, current property tax bill, current vehicle registration, correspondence from a student’s school addressed to the student. For seniors, 62 years or older, a Medicare card or Department of Motor Vehicles driver’s license/ID or Metro Senior ID card is needed. A Los Angeles County Transit Operators Association card is required for persons with disabilities, and a Metro student fare card or Metro college/vocational ID card is required for students.
