Help California's students get to and stay in school by showing your support for a Statewide Student Transit Pass Program.
Low-income students across California need your help to get to school! Giving free or reduced-fare transit passes to middle, high school, and college students all over the state helps everyone to share in the advantages of an education—and investing in student transit programs is an investment in our future.
Besides elevating the lifelong potential of our students, these programs can help to improve our transit systems, create lifelong transit users, reduce carbon emissions and traffic congestion, and reduce strain on low-income families.
Legislation Update: Despite Governor Brown's veto of the statewide student transit pass program bill last year, Assemblymember Chris Holden (D-Pasadena) isn't giving up on getting all of California's students to school. His persistence is paying off; his new bill crafted to analyze and report back on the state of local student transit pass programs just passed out of the Assembly Transportation Committee, and CalBike will be keeping you up to date and working behind the scenes to ensure all of our students have affordable, accessible, safe, and sustainable ways to get to school.
We'll update this space as the legislation hopefully moves forward, so sign up for our advocacy updates below to stay in the loop and stand up for students.
Join us and stand up for our students, and take action to support healthy, safe, and accessible routes to school.
