Pass to Class celebrates a milestone 1 million bus rides taken by students since the program’s inception.
MCC and Metro have been teaming up with one another since October '09 to present Pass to Class, a program to encourage bus ridership with MCC students. This exciting program allows all MCC credit and GED students a Metro bus pass valid for a quarter that allows for rides to and from MCC locations and for other education-related purposes.
The program was started to help both MCC and Metro. MCC students have increased access to classes and locations and decreased parking congestion, and MCC is able to study student travel patterns. Metro is looking at ridership patterns and increasing their passengers. At the same time, this program is helping reduce single-occupancy vehicle trips and decrease emissions into the environment.
- The Pass to Class will be used for getting to and from MCC
locations and for other education-related purposes.
- The Pass to Class is to be used only by the student enrolled in
credit and GED classes at MCC. Use by someone other than the enrolled
participant may result in termination from the program. Passes may
not be transferred between individuals and will be deactivated upon
voluntary or involuntary disenrollment from MCC classes.
- One Pass to Class pass will be issued at the start of each
quarter; thereafter, the student is subject to a $25 fee for the
replacement of any lost or stolen bus pass. (only one replacement allowed)
- Students will be responsible for showing their MCC Student ID Card along with their Pass to Class card when entering the bus. Students who do not have their MCC ID at time of service may be denied service.
- All Metro rules and regulations must be followed. Failure to abide
by the Metro rules and regulations may result in termination from the
- See 'Helpful Tips & Rules' for a printable version of Metro's Pass to Class information.
