LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Commuters will no longer have to worry about carrying change now that all 26 municipal transit agencies in Los Angeles County accept TAP cards as fare.

The card costs $2 online and at grocery stores, and it costs $1 at transit station vending machines. The program to use cards cost the county $260 million to start, but many riders said the change will make a difference in their travel.
