City Expands Traffic TAP Card Purchasing Locations

bus_interiorDue to popular demand, the City of Santa Clarita has expanded the sales locations for the Transit Access Pass (TAP) cards. Mail America in Canyon Country, Railroad Café in Newhall and VONS in Newhall, will be open for Transit Access Pass purchase and reloading starting January 3, 2011.

The City of Santa Clarita launched the TAP program locally in June, 2009. TAP is Los Angeles County’s new, cash-free system for transit fare payment. The pre-loaded card allows riders to pay transit fees, eliminating the need to carry exact change. Effective January 1, 2011, the local Santa Clarita Transit paper pass will be discontinued and transitioned onto the TAP card.

“Because the City of Santa Clarita has seen such demand for the new TAP cards, local sales locations have been added to accommodate City of Santa Clarita Transit Riders,” said Mayor Laurene Weste. “The online purchase and electronic loading of monthly local, commuter, or day passes to TAP cards by our Transit customers eliminates over 70,000 pieces of paper yearly, reducing our carbon footprint.”

Mail America is located at 18565 Soledad Canyon Road, Railroad Café is located at 22505 Market Street, and VONS is located at 24160 Lyons Avenue.
