Did you know that GTrans now participates in the GoPass Program? Using a registered TAP card, students from participating school districts can ride for free to and from school and on trips after school and on weekends. If a student is already part of the TAP K-12 Reduced Fare program, they will need to pick up a new Fareless K-12 card from their school to register in the portal. Students can ride on any participating transit system.
What is the GoPass Student Fareless Program?
A new pilot program for students at participating K-12 and Community Colleges to help students ride transit for free
Who is eligible to participate in the program?
LA County K-12 and Community College students who attend GoPass participating schools, and have received an eligible GoPass TAP card or unique registration code and registered on the portal at https://www.taptogo.net/fareless.
Can a parent ride free when they accompany a student?
No. Parents, caretakers, friends from other school districts will need to pay appropriate fare.
