Fare Collection Will Resume In West Hollywood

Fare collection will resume on Metro buses on January 10, following suspension of fares during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The City of West Hollywood is getting the word out that Metro will resume collecting fares on buses across Los Angeles County starting on Monday, January 10, 2022. Metro had suspended fare collection during the COVID-19 pandemic.

To prepare for this change, the City of West Hollywood is encouraging qualifying seniors and residents with disabilities to apply for the City’s subsidized Senior/Disabled Bus Pass Program. 

The City provides free bus passes to West Hollywood residents who are eligible for Metro’s Senior/Disabled Reduced Fare TAP Card. Regularly, a 30-day pass for people participating in Metro’s Senior/Disabled reduced fare program would cost $20. West Hollywood residents can choose to get a 30-day Metro pass or $20 in Stored Value at no cost; the City covers 100 percent of the bus pass cost for eligible residents. For details, please visit the City’s Bus Pass Subsidy website page: www.weho.org/services/public-transportation-transit-options/bus-pass-subsidy.

Additionally, Metro provides reduced-cost transit for low-income riders via its Low-Income Fare is Easy (LIFE) program. The program offers fare discounts that can be applied to purchasing weekly and monthly transit passes on Metro and any LIFE participating transit agencies. For details about Metro’s LIFE program, including how to apply, please visit the Metro LIFE website page: www.metro.net/riding/life.

 For background information, please visit Metro’s The Source blog post about its LIFE program: https://thesource.metro.net/2021/11/30/reminder-metro-offering-fare-discounts-as-fare-collection-restarts-on-metro-buses-on-jan-10/ or stop by a Metro Customer Care Center. The nearest Metro Customer Center to the City of West Hollywood is located at the Wilshire/Vermont Metro Station at 3183 Wilshire Boulevard, Suite 174, Los Angeles.
