TAP Overview

TAP is a cool, reusable card that improves your multimodal transit experience. Use it to pay for bus and rail trips, and other transit programs throughout LA County.

Each TAP Card has an Electronic Chip

It’s like a mini computer built into your card! Just add Stored Value (money) or a pass, then tap it each time you board a bus or train. It’s way faster than cash!

Benefits of Card Registration

Create a TAP account and register your TAP card. You’ll get benefits such as:

  • Balance Protection - If your card is lost, you can recover the balance and transfer it to a new card.
  • Programs - Try Metro Bike Share! Other new programs will be added soon.
  • Rewards (Coming Soon) - Earn points when you buy TAP products. Use your points to buy other TAP products and programs.
