Metro buses will resume collecting fares on buses across Los Angeles County starting on Monday, January 10, 2022. Metro suspended fare collection during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The City of West Hollywood is getting the word out to make sure the community is prepared for this change and to encourage 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 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 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.

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 buses and any LIFE participating transit agencies.
