Access Services Customers

Passengers with an LA County Access Services ID card ride for free on Long Beach Transit buses. Just tap your card when you board.

Please note: personal care attendants must pay full fare. The OCTA Access Services program is not affiliated with the LA County program.

Interagency Transfers

Transfers between LA County transit agencies are exclusively on TAP using Stored Value. Your transfer will be valid for 2.5 hours from the first trip of your journey during which time any subsequent trips will have your transfer fare calculated automatically when tapping.

OCTA does not issue Interagency Transfers but accepts LBT’s Interagency Transfers as long as the time, date and direction of travel (one-way) are valid. An Interagency Transfer is issued for 50¢ upon receipt of adequate cash fare or a valid pass. Only one Interagency Transfer is issued per each paid fare to complete a one-way trip.

LBT accepts OCTA’s Day Passes for one ride at the point of connection in lieu of an Interagency Transfer. No other OCTA fare media will be accepted.

Please call LBT’s Customer Service department at 562.591.2301 for more information.
