TAP Information from GSG — Read This to Get Your TAP Card For Next Semester


On-line sign-ups begin on December 30, 2013.


Graduate students who have paid the USC Student Activity Fee can opt into the program by paying an $85 co-payment fee, plus a one-time $5 new card fee, through the "public transit" tab of the USC Transportation website (http://usc.edu/parking). On the left side, click on the "Graduate Student Metro TAP Pass" and you will be directed to complete a form.

You will receive a confirmation email within 48-72 business hours stating the fee has been processed and where you can pick up your card starting January 7th.

Cards are available on a first come, first served basis.

Distribution of cards will start on January 7, 2013 until we are sold out.


Once you receive the confirmation email from gsgcamp@usc.edu within 2-3 business days, please come to the Graduate Student Government office in the Tutor Campus Center room 224, Monday-Thursday between 10 am and 4 pm OR M-Th 12 PM-1 PM and F 1:30 PM-2:30 PM on the Health Science Campus in room SRH101A. 

The cards become active on the first day of the spring semester, January 13, 2014  and are valid throughout the Spring semester until May 16, 2014. If you have the Fall TAP card, the card ends on January 12th.

The cards can be used 7 days a week for unlimited rides on the Metro. This includes the Metro Rapid bus lines and the Red, Blue, Green, Gold and Expo rail lines as well as regular Metro buses traveling (including zones 1 and 2).

If you are riding the LADOT Commuter Express, please consult their website, http://store.ladottransit.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Store_Code=LTS&Screen=CTGY&Category_Code=MP4 to see what their pass price is.  However, it is NOT covered under our program.

The pass is not valid on Metrolink, EZ Passes, or the LADOT Commuter Express.
