Thanks to overwhelming support, Student Measure A, the Universal Transit Pass agreement with Sacramento RTD passes overwhelmingly with 96% of students voting in favor of the new arrangement.
This means students with more than 3 units can pay for a public transit pass at $2.10 per unit up to a maximum of 15 units (that’s no more than $31.50) per semester. This also allows students to pay a $10 public transit fee for summer classes. The cost for a student pass is far below the $100 per month RTD charges other passengers.
With the results of the two-day election now complete, the decision will be taken to the Los Rios Community College Board of Trustees meeting on Oct. 21 for final approval.
