COVID-19 Bus Update
Due to the stay at home order, Peninsula College will not be issuing student ID cards and bus passes until further notice. Students can currently ride Clallam Transit and Jefferson Transit buses for free.
The bus pass is an annual contract voted on by students, providing an $8 pass to ride anywhere in Clallam or Jefferson counties each quarter. A monthly bus pass is $54 at CT and $36 at JT. Although many of our students never ride a bus, we believe the vote passed on the grounds that it is for the greater good of all students, particularly those who need to ride the bus to get to the College and to shop in their community. In Clallam County, that amounts to a savings of $155 per quarter for students who ride the bus. Both transit authorities have temporarily suspended fee collection to protect their drivers. The cost to operate and provide service to their respective counties have not changed.
The other half of the transportation fee, the parking pass, also $8, provides annual maintenance for the parking lot. The maintenance fee doesn’t change based on the amount of use the parking lot gets, unfortunately.
Quarterly Peninsula College Bus Pass Information (Post COVID-19)
Peninsula College students enrolled in tuition-based courses are eligible for a quarterly Peninsula College Bus Pass. The non-transferable bus pass allows students’ unlimited travel on Clallam Transit buses throughout Clallam County during the quarter they are enrolled. A $8.00 fee is charged to all students in credit-bearing classes; this was voted for by students through the Associated Student Body. Beginning Fall quarter of 2015, students will have the opportunity to ride both Clallam Transit AND Jefferson Transit buses with an $8.00 fee.
Here is how you obtain your pass:
- Pick up your free Student ID card from the Student Services Front Counter and ask about your bus pass sticker. The ID card will be good for the entire year, but the sticker must be renewed each quarter.
- The Bus Pass cannot be used until the first day of the quarter, but is valid during the break between quarters.
- If you are enrolled in only Continuing Education classes, you are not eligible for a Peninsula College Bus Pass.
- The Bus Pass Fee is non-refundable unless the student withdraws, does not pick up the bus pass, and requests a refund.
If you are not currently enrolled in a tuition-based course but enrolled in one of the programs listed below, you may still purchase a bus pass or parking pass for $8.00 each.
- Basic Skills
- Upward Bound
- GED Prep
- Child of Police/Fire
- Fallen Vet, Spouse/Child
If you lose your ID card with your Bus Pass, please go to the Student Services front counter and a $10.00 replacement fee to obtain a new card and pass.
