Student Elections

Special Elections on Measure A: Universal Transit Pass (UTP):

Measure A UPDATE:

The contract with Regional Transit is scheduled to expire in November 2016. Negotiations to continue the Universal Transit Pass program for five more years took place over the past year. At the completion of negotiations, a student election for the renewal was held September 22-23, 2015.

The results of the recently held student election are as follows:

Measure A: Universal Transit Pass

Total Voters:3819

Choice View Raw Votes Votes Percentage
Vote “YES”361196%
Vote “NO”1354%


Passed:  Now that the students have approved the agreement, the item will be brought to the Los Rios Community College District Board of Trustees for ratification at the October 21st meeting. We are pleased that students will be receiving a UTP pass (valued at $500) for less than $32, and will now have the opportunity to purchase a summer pass for a flat rate of $10. This pass helps students who don’t have cars by giving them inexpensive access to transit as well as students that do have cars by opening up parking spaces, and helps all of us by reducing pollution and traffic.

Thank you all for promoting this important election and to all the students for taking the time to vote.
