LADOT Transit Pass Information

These passes are not accepted on any Metro Bus or Metro Rail lines. However, LADOT riders can request a transfer coupon from LADOT bus drivers to complete their trip on another Metro Bus of Metro Rail line for $0.50.

If a rider regularly rides two or more transit agencies like LADOT Commuter Express and Metro Bus, the EZ transit pass is a good monthly option.

If you only ride LADOT occasionally and do not need a quarterly pass, you can purchase a 20-trip booklet online. These purchases, however, do not qualify for the subsidized rate.
