I will be in LA for 10 days in May and Im a little bit confused with a TAP cards.
>After using your TAP card to board a Metro bus or other participating municipal line, pay the bus operator the cash fee for a Metro-to-Muni transfer, and use the paper transfer slip or transfer that is loaded onto your TAP card<
What is the "transfer"? Does that mean, that if I go with Metro bus and want to continue with non-Metro TAP accepting bus, I have to ask a driver (is that the operator right?) for some transfer and pay for it, even if I have a TAP card with loaded fare?
And if its true, isnt cheaper not to pay for transfer and buy a ticket on that other bus, like if Im not tranfering? (I guess not :)
Thanks a lot for every answer!
By the way, isnt someone going to Chino Airshow on May 3 with a car and 2 free seats? ;)
