CSULB U-Pass TAP Card Program
CSULB has partnered with Long Beach Transit to offer the U-Pass TAP Program, which provides free transit on all Long Beach Transit buses to eligible students, faculty and staff. Direct bus routes to campus are routes: 81, 91, 92, 93, 94, 96, 171, 173 and Passport D. Plan your trip by visiting www.lbtransit.com/Services/
Obtaining TAP Cards
To obtain your U-Pass TAP card, please visit the Cashiers Office located on the 1st floor of Brotman Hall, Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. U-Pass TAP cards are available to all enrolled students and staff/faculty members who are currently employed by the university or auxiliary organizations. Please bring a valid CSULB ID. An initial fee of $5 will be charged for the cost of the physical TAP card.
Student TAP cards are not active during times that they are not enrolled in classes; this includes summer break. Students who are not enrolled in the summer session, but are employed by the university during these months will continue to enjoy active TAP program services.
Replacing TAP Cards
Save your TAP card for future use if planning to attend classes during future semesters. A $5 fee will be charged to replace lost or discarded TAP cards. TAP cards can be obtained at the Cashiers Office in Brotman Hall 148, Monday- Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
New TAP sticker (summer 2017)
TAP cards will soon be replaced by a smaller TAP sticker that will be placed on the back of the CSULB ID card. TAP stickers will be issued in lieu of the physical TAP cards starting on June 19. Current TAP card holders can opt to purchase a new TAP sticker for their ID, but will not be required to do so at this time.
All existing TAP Cards will remain valid, but no new TAP Cards will be issued after June 19. The reason for transition is to eliminate the need for CSULB individuals to keep and carry two separate cards. The TAP sticker will cost $5, same as the fee for the current TAP card.
