On Thursday May 5, 2022, Antelope Valley Transit Authority and L.A. Metro will hold a pop-up promotional event at Sgt. Steve Owen Memorial Park Transit Center from 10:00am to 2:00pm. The address is 43011 10th Street West in Lancaster.
Metro’s Low-Income Fare is Easy (LIFE) Program reduces the cost of transit for low-income riders. The program offers fare discounts that can be applied toward the purchase of weekly and monthly transit passes on AVTA, Metro, and any LIFE participating transit agencies, or 20 free rides on any one of the participating transit agencies.
“The LIFE Program is a powerful tool for AVTA and our community,” said AVTA Chairman of the Board Marvin Crist. “LIFE is just one of the methods that AVTA uses to make reduced fares and free transportation available to low-income families, students, veterans, and the senior citizens of the Antelope Valley.”
Those that sign up can get “90 days of free rides.” To better understand qualifications, attend this pop-up promotional event. To apply, please have the following:
- Photo ID

- You have the option to self-certify or provide proof of income (Medi-Cal, EBT, any proof of public benefits, Social Security award, check stub, tax return)
- If proof of income is unavailable, complete self-certification in section 3 of LIFE application
