Free Transit Passes for Qualifying Students

This school year, registered students who are low income at PUSD middle and high schools are eligible to receive a free Student Transit Pass - a youth Clipper card that provides unlimited free access to LAVTA Wheels bus services as well as a 50 percent discount on BART trips and youth discounts on other transit systems.

 

These passes are being distributed as part of the Student Transit Pass Program, sponsored by the Alameda County Transportation Commission and funded through Measure BB, the local transportation sales tax measure.

 

To participate, complete a Transit Pass Program youth application and indicate that your family income qualifies as indicated on the form. Students under the age of 18 must have their parent or legal guardian complete and sign the application. Once the form is submitted and verified by school staff, students will receive a youth Clipper card within one month.

 

If you have questions, please contact Patty Blair at pblair@pleasantonusd.net.

If you are planning to volunteer during the 2019-2020 school year, please click on the following link to complete the Volunteer Clearance Form. All volunteers, that come on the school campus and work with the kids or chaperone field trips, MUST be cleared.
