We’re improving elevator safety and reliability by limiting access to riders only.
After a month-long test in summer 2023, we found that limiting access to the elevator at the Hollywood Transit Center MAX Station to riders only helped discourage misuse and reduced elevator outages.
Our goal is to keep our elevators as clean and reliable as possible for riders, so we plan to gradually add card readers to our elevators throughout the transit system.
To use an elevator with access control, tap your valid Hop card, Hop ticket, contactless credit/debit card or phone (with mobile wallet enabled) on the black card reader located to the right of the elevator door. The screen on the reader will say “Elevator Access.” Similar to a Hop reader, you touch your card to the black area below the screen. There is no charge to access the elevator.
