A number of changes are being implemented for Metro TAP cards Sunday, including making transfers between most TAP-participating agencies available exclusively on TAP, which means cash will no longer be accepted when transferring from one agency to another.

Metro Day Pass sales are also being discontinued on buses, and riders will be able to load a TAP card with up to $20 in stored value instead, although Metro Day Passes can still be purchased at TAP vending machines, online at taptogo.net, by calling 866.TAPTOGO, at Metro Customer Centers and at 400+ vendor locations throughout Los Angeles County.

Other changes include:

— TAP cards will cost $2 at all locations, up from $1.

— Stored value can now be added in any amount in $1 increments, with a maximum of $60 per transaction.

— Riders can now purchase up to five TAP cards in one transaction, each loaded with a Metro Day Pass, although each passenger must have their own TAP card, and for future use each card must be reloaded individually.

— EZ transit passes can now be purchased at TAP vending machines. They are monthly, calendar-based passes that are good for local and express travel on most transit agencies throughout L.A. County.
