  1. Additional passes purchased during the year are prorated, so you can add employees to the program whenever you want.
  1. Once our partnership is official, we'll send each employee a personalized, ready-to-use TAP Card, pre-loaded with an Unlimited Ride Pass. 

    Note
    : A TAP Card is a durable, reloadable card that can be used for seamless travel on 24 transit agencies in LA County. Read more about TAP here.
  1. Finally, we'll help kick off your new program by holding a transportation fair at your workplace. We'll also provide ongoing support and resources to ensure your program is a success.
