So.CA.TA. Tours Metro’s TAP Lab

On Saturday August 16th Southern California Transit Advocates will be making a return visit to Metro’s TAP Lab. This will be an opportunity to learn about the status of the program and implementation of the changes that will facilitate the fare change that will take place September 15th. Participants will meet up at 10 a.m. in the lobby of the Metro Headquarters Building adjacent to the Patsaouras Transit Plaza. Members of the public are welcome to be part of the tour. Kudos to SO.CA.TA member Ken Ruben for arranging the tour and Metro staff member David Sutton for the invitation. The tour will last two hours.
