As of July 1, 2020 transit on both AC Transit and WestCAT is free. We are monitoring the situation closely to see how this will impact the Pass2Class 2020 program
What is Pass2Class?
Pass2Class is an established program that offers one month free public transit passes at the beginning of the school year to students in West Contra Costa County to encourage the use of buses to and from school. The Pass2Class program reduces traffic congestion and air pollution in the community by reducing the number of trips made by parents to take students to school.
Important note for WCCUSD High School Students: While Pass2Class only has funds to offer a single month pass to each student per year, West Contra Costa Unified School District (WCCUSD) administers a program that provides passes every month of the entire school year to high schools students (grades 9 – 12) in WCCUSD who also qualify for the Free and Reduced Lunch program. If you qualify, please apply to that program, not Pass2Class. Apply to the WCCUSD High School Free and Reduced Lunch Bus Pass Program HERE or call (510) 307-4526 for more information.
