All In Favor Of GGRF $$ For Student Transit Passes?


As the the cost of education has gone up and the economic fortunes of families have gone down, providing students with universal student transit passes — like Santa Monica College’s “Any Line Any Time” program — seems like a better and better idea. A UCLA study shows these passes can increase student ridership by 70% to 200% and reduce driving by a similar measure. There are empty seats on transit that students could fill. GHG emissions would go down. We could develop life-long transit riders. And the Legislature is deciding what to spend GHG Reduction Fund money on. We are asking the Legislature to set aside $25 million of the GGRF for student passes — which are an eligible expense. 15 LA County community colleges and 20 nonprofit groups have joined us in this “ask” of the Legislature.
