With transportation and parking an ever growing problem in Los Angeles, we’re very glad to be eligible to take part in an excellent program from Metro. We are able to offer annual Metro TAP cards at a significant discount (and by significant, I mean almost 75% off the regular monthly TAP card price!). Our full-time members are eligible and almost 1/2 of our coworkers are using it now. It’s good for travel on the Metro bus and train lines and since it’s good for the whole year, you don’t have to bother with reloading it monthly.
As you may know, Metro is slowly transitioning to requiring all riders to have a TAP card and soon gates and turnstiles at the stations will be locked — opening only with an active TAP card. It’s especially convenient because the Chinatown Gold Line station is just 2 blocks away (bringing in riders from Pasadena and Sierra Madre, down to East LA). There’s also several major bus lines that stop just steps away from our front door. We’d be happy to let you know more so ask about it the next time you’re in!
