Visit to see if you might be eligible for the LIFE program. If you’re eligible, you can reach out to an administrator to apply for the LIFE program. You may also call (213) 922-2378 with any questions about the LIFE program.

You will need to have the following items:

  1. Government-issued photo ID (Driver’s License, Passport, etc.)
  2. Proof of income (check stub, Medi-Cal, EBT, Social Security award, or tax return.)
  3. Valid TAP card (this is required to receive the subsidy; if you’re eligible for a senior, disabled, or student discount, you will need to have the appropriate discounted TAP card.)
    Note: LIFE discounted passes cannot be loaded to a temporary reduced fare TAP card.

The following transit systems are participants in LIFE:

Don’t forget to register your TAP card for balance protection. Passes are available for purchase on the 1st of every month. More information on the LIFE program is available at
