As part of a new pilot program running through December 21, 2016, Metro TAP card holders with a seven-day or 30-day pass can ride DASH for free.

The new promotion is part of the California Climate Investments, which uses proceeds from the state's cap-and-trade auctions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while providing other benefits to communities around the state.

In addition to Metro's new bike-share system, the DASH system is a great way to make first-and-last mile connections to Metro. Check out this list of all DASH bus lines.
