AC Transit EasyPass 2020

Spring 2020 Peralta EasyPass valid from January 14, 2020 – August 31, 2020

Is there an Easy Pass for the fall 2020 semester?

There will not be an Easy Pass available for fall 2020.

CA Ed Code 76361 requires student majority vote to establish a Transportation Fee. Proposition A, which was passed in the May 2009 and May 2016 by student elections, requires all Peralta students carrying six or more units to pay an AC Transit EasyPass bus pass fee however, spring 2020 election results demonstrate that the referendum failed.

Prior to the referendum’s final language, PCCD worked to negotiate alternate ways to reduce the fee but AC Transit refused all ideas and proved to be inflexible. Thus, the final referendum reflected the AC Transit-imposed increased fee that would have begun this fall 2020.

Why do I have to Pay the AC Transit Fee

Proposition A, which was passed in the May 2009 and May 2016 student elections, requires all Peralta students carrying six or more units to pay an AC Transit EasyPass buss pass fee of $42.29, thereby making them eligible to receive an AC Transit EasyPass buss pass. With EasyPass you can ride all AC Transit bus lines, including local and Transbay service, at all times.

Please note: If you drop below six units, you can receive a refund before the last Day to Drop Regular Session Classes. See deadline dates in the Academic Calendar.
