All TK-12 students in the Pasadena Unified School District are now eligible to ride the Metro for free, thanks to a new program called the LA Metro Fareless System Initiative.
By News Desk
The pilot program is geared towards helping students ride transit without the worry of paying fare. Students will have access to unlimited rides until June 30, 2024 on buses and trains run by LA Metro and other participating transit systems, at no cost to families.
In order to start riding for free, families will have to pick up a special GoPass TAP card and new eligibility code from their school and register it online or via phone to activate.
How to Register a Card?
There are three options to register the new GoPass TAP card. (It will not work until it is registered).
To register, choose one of these steps:
- Online at taptogo.net/gopass.
- Call TAP at 866.TAPTOGO (M-F, 8:00 am – 4:30 pm).
- Use your smartphone camera on the QR code below to activate online.
For additional assistance, parents can send an email (in English or Spanish) to Sandra Vaca with PUSD Transportation at firstname.lastname@example.org.
