    • TAP and EZ Transit Pass
      In Los Angeles County, the EZ Transit Pass program gives Metrolink ticket holders unlimited travel on participating operators' local services — any time, any day, any station, any direction of travel. Metro employs the TAP system for collecting fares, which uses smart chip technology to activate turnstiles and platform validators. To provide a seamless transfer experience for customers, Metrolink tickets and passes with an origin or destination in Los Angeles County are now embedded with a smart chip that the passenger can use to transfer to Metro services. Simply “tap” your ticket on the validator when you board a Metro bus or enter a rail station. Local service includes all Metro Rail, Metro Rapid Bus and Metro Local Bus routes. An additional fare for express service may be required.
