The City of Monterey Park announces that Metro TAP Card readers are now installed on the city’s municipal Spirit Bus system. Purchasing and using a TAP card can allow bus patrons to ride seamlessly and conveniently throughout Los Angeles County without cash.
TAP (Transit Access Pass) is a durable, plastic card that can be used again and again. It’s an eco-friendly alternative to the disposable paper passes/transfers. TAP cards are accepted by numerous operators in the San Gabriel Valley including Access Services, Foothill Transit, LADOT, Montebello Bus Lines, Norwalk Transit, Pasadena ARTS and Metro.
TAP cards can currently be purchased at Ralphs Supermarket, 2230 S. Atlantic Blvd. in Atlantic Square; Langley Senior Center, 400 W. Emerson Ave.; the Gold Line Station at Atlantic and Pomona Boulevards.; and at the Cal State University, Los Angeles Busway/Metrolink Station.
