Big Blue Bus Helps Older Adults "TAP" Into Fares

The Senior TAP Card offers you a quick, easy, and seamless way to pay your fare on 24 TAP-participating agencies in L.A. County.

To help older adults apply for a Senior TAP Card, Big Blue Bus has partnered with Metro’s Mobile Customer Center, to host free monthly workshops at the Ken Edwards Center in Downtown Santa Monica. At the educational workshop, you will learn how to pay bus and rail fare with a TAP card and discover convenient options for reloading the card. Afterward, Big Blue Bus and Metro staff will help you complete and submit your application for a Senior TAP Card. We’ll also snap your application photo at no cost, so bring your best smile. A temporary TAP card will be available to all applicants for immediate use. Both the card and application are free. On workshop day, be sure to bring a valid form of identification, such as a state ID card, driver’s license, passport, or birth certificate with a photo ID.

Workshops occur the first Wednesday of the month, excluding December. The next upcoming workshop will be held on Wednesday, November 1 at 1 p.m. at the Ken Edwards Center. We hope to see you there!
