Art on TAP

Art on TAP cards are Metro’s smallest artworks that fit inside pockets and accompany transit riders on their journeys.

Special edition Art on TAP cards in celebration of the Metro Art Through the Eyes of Artists 20th Anniversary are available while supplies last.

To commemorate Metro Art’s Through the Eyes of Artists poster series celebrating its 20th anniversary, a limited edition of Art on TAP cards featuring 5 of the artworks from the series will be available for purchase while supplies last. In the tradition of colorful travel destination posters, the artworks are part of an award-winning series by local artists that illustrate the unique places accessible by Metro across L.A. County.
