MPC PARTNERS WITH MST TO OFFER FREE RIDES TO STUDENTS

Through the Free Fare Zone partnership, Monterey-Salinas Transit (MST) and Monterey Peninsula College (MPC) are excited to announce free bus rides for MPC students starting on the first day of school, August 16, 2019.  Students with a valid MPC student ID card will be able to ride MST buses for free when boarding from any stop on the Monterey and Marina campuses. Students simply present their valid photo student ID to the coach operator, and they are on their way!

MST General Manager/CEO, Carl Sedoryk stated, “Building partnerships within the community while supporting students pursuing their education is something MST is extremely proud of.”  Free bus rides will not only save students money, it’s convenient, and a great way to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and relieve traffic congestion in our beautiful area.

MST offers service from MPC campuses to locations all over the Monterey Peninsula, Salinas, and even South County. Students needing to transfer to another bus to complete their one-way trip will be issued a free transfer ticket by the coach operator valid for one transfer.

“Transportation can be a significant financial barrier for students in our community.  We are excited for the opportunity to partner with MST to address this issue and enhance access to educational opportunities here at MPC,” said David Martin, MPC Interim Superintendent/President.
