Los Angeles City College (LACC) students can now get a six-month Metro Transit Pass worth $165 for only $15 when they register for 12 units or more in the Spring Semester, which begins February 9, 2009.

The bus pass, called I-TAP for Institutional Transit Access Pass, will be active from January 1 to June 30, 2009.  I-TAP passes are good on all Metro Buses (including zone travel), Metro Rapid and Metro Rail.  (Metrolink trains or DASH/LADOT buses are not included in this promotion.)

The pass is valid 24 hours a day, 7 days a week; students can even commute to work. To ride Metro, students will need to show the I-TAP pass and carry a valid Student ID card.

Full time students--those who are enrolled in 12 units or more--can obtain the pass for $15 in the LACC Business Office by bringing proof of enrollment for Spring 2009 and a current LACC ID card.

The I-TAP provides full-time college students at participating campuses with a specially-priced Metro pass at a reduced rate.  I-TAP reduces parking demand, allowing more students more access to campus and makes college more affordable by reducing auto and gas costs.

LACC College, and select other institutions including UCLA, Pierce College and Valley College, subsidize the cost of the pass for students. Phone Metro information at 213.922.2811.        

Located at the Vermont Ave. and Santa Monica Blvd. Redline Metro Rail stop, LACC has a wide variety of short-term, on-line, evening and weekend classes.  For more information, call 1.888.930.LACC or visit  Los Angeles City College is home to more than 16,000 full time students and provides pre-major courses to students wishing to transfer to universities, as well as a variety of two-year vocational job training programs.  Classes are offered year-round and financial aid is available to students who qualify.
