Students at PCC granted unlimited use on public transportation

Pasadena City College (PCC), part of California’s 112 community colleges, has partnered with LA Metro so that students can ride local public transportation at a discounted rate for the fall semester, according to the Altadena Patch.

I-TAP (Institutional Transit Access Pass) provides full-time college students with a specially-priced Metro pass at a reduced rate or at no cost to the student. The durable plastic card contains a smart chip that allows students to simply “tap” their card before boarding. The card is valid on all Metro buses and Metro Rail trains.

The program – valid seven days a week, 24/7 – encourages students to leave their cars at home and take transit to school and/or work. This not only makes college more affordable by eliminating or reducing the need for a car and gas, but it also reduces parking demand, allowing campuses to delay and/or avoid construction of new parking facilities. I-TAP also ensures better community relations by reducing student parking in surrounding neighborhoods.

Students can visit the Student Business Services building to purchase passes for unlimited use for $30 this semester.
