Everything You Wanted to Know about the TAP Cards

1_20_09_TAP.jpg

Did you know that Metro is planning to convert all but single ride passes to TAP Cards by the summer?  How about the plan to have every transit line, bus and train, accept TAP Cards in the next couple of months?

While the rollout of the "new and improved" TAP system has been in the works for a long time, in November of 2007 the new system was used as an excuse to end the free transfer between Metro and DASH buses, most regular Metro riders don't really know about these changes or how Metro is going to make these changes?

Some, maybe all, of these questions will be answered tomorrow at an open meeting of Metro's Citizen Advisory Council.  Jane Matsumato, Metro's point person for the TAP system, will be presenting the changes and answering any questions or concerns people might have.  The meeting starts at 6:30 in the Gateway Center Conference Room at Metro Headquarters.
