Hot New LADOT TAP Cards Available for Pre-Order Now

Earlier this week, we debuted the new-look LADOT TAP Cards that will be available in May on Streetsblog LITE. Just like current LADOT TAP, you can add fare media for both LADOT and Metro on one card. Unlike the current cards, these could become collector’s items as the Exposition Opening Cards already have.

People were so excited, there was a small social media buzz asking how to get the cards. LADOT happily reported that you can pre-order the cards now. LADOT spokesperson Bruce Gillman:

To pre-order cards call LADOT at (213,310,323 or 818) 808-2273.  These personalized TAP cards will also be availble for pre-ordering beginning Friday on line at: http://www.ladottransit.com/ or by stopping in at the LADOTTransit store located at 201 N Los Angeles Street, Lower Level, Los Angeles, CA 90012. Cards will be in the store for walk-up purchases starting May 20th.

LADOT Announces TAP Card Design Contest

When Metro released special TAP cards for the opening of the Expo Line, I was intrigued. Why, I wondered, doesn’t Metro do more interesting things with TAP design all of the time? Why the insistence on selling these boring blue cards? Over the past year and a half, we’ve seen some other unique TAP designs, […]
