Transit Ambassadors

Link Kicks Off Another Year of the Transit Ambassador Program


Click here to fill out the Transit Ambassador application online  

Application Deadline IS MARCH 31, 2017


Link Transit is recruiting students to assist in their marketing and outreach efforts to students in a program called Transit Ambassadors.

We will be accepting applications for next years ambassadors from March 1-31, 2017 with mandatory orientation on April 15th.

The Transit Ambassador Program is designed to give students a better understanding of the value of public transportation, the environmental and financial benefits that public transportation provides to communities, and how to better utilize public transit to access work, school, and recreational opportunities.

Additionally, students will get to assist in creating a marketing and promotional campaign targeted at attracting youth riders to public transportation, and help promote the Student Freedom Pass at school events.

Transit Ambassadors may come from any school in Chelan and Douglas county, as long as they will be attending that same school in the 2017 - 2018 school year and will be in grades 9 - 12 NEXT year.

Open and complete our online application (at the top of this page) by our deadline on March 31. Also, please email a photo of yourself (head shot only) to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

To be eligible, applicants must be able to attend training on April 15th and complete 30 volunteer hours by September 1st. Hours completed will count towards graduation requirements and/or Youth United Programs.

As a Transit Ambassador, you will receive a free Student Freedom Pass. You will receive training on handling Frequently Asked Transit Questions, and act as a student representative within your school and the community to promote sales of the Student Freedom Pass as a fund raiser for your school.

The Student Freedom Pass is available for any student within Link's service area, for a cost of $90 for the entire school year, and is good for travel on all Link routes. Participating schools get $10 for each pass sold at their school.

Please Yield To Buses

YIELD TO BUSES BIG BOX ADEvery day, more and more people are riding Link Transit to get where they need to go. This means that along all our urban area routes, every few blocks a bus may stop to pick up or drop off passengers, pulling out of traffic when there is room to do so. Sometimes this is not possible depending on the configuration of the roadway and the width of the parking lane.

If you happen to be behind a bus when it is signaling to get back into traffic, we ask that you please yield to the bus. This allows the bus driver to safely merge back into traffic while maintaining their schedule for those riding the bus, and waiting further down the route for the bus to arrive on schedule. It only takes a few seconds for the bus to get moving again, and then everyone can continue safely on their way.

Our drivers and our passengers thank you for this courtesy.
