The Whatcom Transportation Authority has partnered with Whatcom Community College to create a universal bus pass agreement.
All enrolled WCC students have prepaid access to WTA’s bus system. Students will pay a fee to WCC, which then pays the bus authority based on student enrollment. WTA is offering a significant discount in exchange for getting a bus pass into the pocket of every WCC student, according to a news release.
Students will be able to ride not just to the campus, but anywhere WTA goes in Whatcom County. It’s a program that is similar to an agreement WTA has with Western Washington University.
