Real change, not loose change


Real change, not loose change

Look around. Just about everyone is moving to TAP (Transit Access Pass), L.A. County's new fare payment system.

While not a pass in itself, the TAP card is an important innovation for L.A. County transit riders. The durable plastic card contains a smart chip that allows you to buy and electronically load a Foothill Transit 31-day pass, monthly passes for participating municipal lines, a credit balance toward cash fares, or any combination of the three. In other words, TAP becomes your "transfer fare wallet" – holding your passes and cash, paying fares to the exact penny, and freeing you up from carrying around loose change. It even recognizes transfers!

And your TAP card will only get better over time. Because of its state-of-the-art smart chip technology, TAP allows Foothill Transit to look to the future, finding modern new ways to deliver an improved transit experience.
