How do I know which pass to purchase?
Call 323-GO-METRO (323-466-3876) for assistance. Provide the customer service representative with your starting location and your destination and they will let you know which pass is required.
What happens after I place my order?
Every GO TAP order placed on TAPTOGO.net is held for the following month with the exception of orders placed between the 25th and the last day of the month which process immediately.

You can also call 213-922-3702 to request your order be released.

The account administrator can request a fare transfer by sending an email to gotap@taptogo.net. Please include the old card number and new card number.
What do I do if the checkout screen says “insufficient funds?”

What is the difference between a calendar pass and a rolling pass?
Calendar passes are valid from the 1st day of the month through the last day of the month and must be activated by the 24th of the month. Rolling passes are valid for a specific number of days from the first time “tapped” (i.e. 7, 30, or 31) and can be activated at any time. EZ transit passes are calendar-based and must be active prior to the 15th of the month to be active for the current month.

An asterisk (*) on the website product menu indicates a calendar-based pass. Otherwise, the product is a rolling fare.
