  • TAP into America

    That TAP article is on point with some of the issues of tap. I myself have dealt with expired TAP cards, Not being able to add newly purchased cards to the website, which is the most ridiculous site on the internet. TAP as a method of paying for a ride is great and works most of the time, but Metro needs to address these other issues. The Metrolink Ticket scheme they worked out seems to work fine. The source (Metro’s PR arm) said they are re-designing the website, but the fundamental problems have to do with the fact they are using a vendor and metro has very little control over the process.
