Monroe Community College is partnering with RTS to off a new program that will allow M-C-C students unlimited rides on RTS buses.
The program is called U-Pass, and allows part time and full time students to ride all RTS bus routes in Monroe County for free with their MCC ID. They just swipe their ID card when they get on the bus.
MCC President Ann Kress says it removes barriers to school and work.
And starting this fall, RTS will offer direct service between MCC’s Brighton and Downtown campuses.
Students who take all their classes online or have all their classes at the Public Safety Training Facility are not eligible for the U-Pass.
MCC is the first collegiate partner-in the region to join the U-Pass program. RTS plans to have similar partnerships with other colleges in the region.
