 Student Freedom Pass (SFP)

For $120.00, you can purchase an unlimited use pass good on all Link Transit fixed routes at any time from June 1, 2017 until June 16, 2018. This program is not designed to take the place of the regular school bus, but rather to give options for students who have transportation needs during the school day for work, medical appointments, or after school, whether it is because of extra curricular activities, employment, or just needing to get around.

Passes for the 2017-2018 school year will be available to purchase at Columbia Station beginning August 15, 2017 or at the beginning of your schools session. These vary from school to school. The pass will be valid from August 27, 2017 to June 14, 2018. You must not have turned 21 prior to the start of school on September 1, 2017. These cost of this pass is $90 if purchased between August 27 and November 30.

Passes purchased at different times of the year will be prorated at the costs below:

NCW Skills Center

Here is how this works:
1. You purchase a voucher at one of the above schools
2. You bring the voucher to Columbia Station to obtain your pass. You must come to Columbia Station in person to get your pass, as we will need to take your picture.
3. If your school is not taking part in this program, you are still able to purchase a pass. Come to Columbia Station and a Guest Services representative will prepare a pass for you. Just bring in picture ID and proof of enrollment at your school. The pass will still cost the same, all of which goes to Link Transit.

NOTE: Student Freedom Passes are not transferrable and not refundable in the event you move, change schools or schedules, or quit riding Link Transit. Lost passes will be replaced one time at a cost of $10.

If you have questions on this program, please contact our Outreach Specialist at 664-7624, or Guest Services at 662-1155
