Students at PCC granted unlimited use on public transportation

CampusIDNews Staff   ||   Sep 16, 2013  ||   

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.
