…with the new Metro Visa-TAP card??? Now that Metro has rolled out this new TAP/Visa combo, will it be a welcome alternative to the existing TAP card holders or will it be an extra card in your wallet?
Some are skeptical due to the TAP card only being available to pre-existing TAP products, with no clear way of determining whether you can add to your declining balance or not. While this sort of TAP card is currently available in both New York and Chicago, Los Angeles is doing their due diligence to integrate more technological advances to the Metro system here in Los Angeles.
We will continue to spread the word on the great improvements rolling out for Metro patrons, as many of our members are avid Metro riders. Aren’t you glad that carsharing has returned to Los Angeles to work in conjunction with your car-free lifestyle?? Don’t forget to check out our new “ShareWare“!!!
