#metrorocks: Tap the Target

October 22, 2019

If you’re heading to the Metro.
And you’re running out of dough. Just pull out your TAP card and get ready
to reload. In a few easy steps, you’ll be travelin’
with the rest. All you gotta do is tap the target.
Tap the target. It’s a big bullseye, you couldn’t miss
it if you tried. Tap the target!
Load it up with cash and you can dash. [music stops] Hello!
Nice video. This is my first time in LA and I don’t know how to use this machine.
We’ll show you how! [music starts] Step one:
Touch the TAP card to your friendly target screen.
Step two: Push the F button to make your wallet lean.
Step three: Choose the fare that fulfills your heart’s
desire, then your credit card will be required.
Tap the target. [music stops] What are you doing later?
Oh…. We got a gig.
Let’s go! Ha ha ha! [music starts]
Tap the target. It’ll beep to confirm;
your quick wit it will affirm. Tap the target.
Proceed through the turnstile with a smile. Tap the target.
Keep these words in mind if your memory’s in a bind.
Tap the target! We hope we’ve entertained, now catch your
train. We hope we’ve entertained, now catch your

    Cute video, nice if they could have taken the money they spent on it and used it to improve the bus service.  Maybe hiring competent drivers would be a good start.

    Cool song! I'm planning to take a round trip from the Silver Line to Torrance Transit (and then the reverse), and was a little unclear on how the interagency transfers work with the TAP card, especially coming back from Torrance Transit to the Silver Line. Can you add how to do that to the song? 🙂
