Free Bus Passes for Students
What is Pass2Class?
Pass2Class offers free bus passes to Contra Costa students at the beginning of the school year to encourage the use of bus transportation to and from school. Pass2Class reduces traffic congestion and air pollution by reducing the number of cars being driven to school.
The 2022 program offers free County Connection, Tri Delta Transit, WestCAT, or AC Transit bus passes for up to two (2) students per household for up to two months.
511 Contra Costa is no longer accepting Pass2Class applications for the 2022/2023 school year.
First, choose the city where your student attends school:
