Verify Fare-Free Student Transit Pass by Sept. 30
Lane Transit District is reminding parents and guardians of area students in Kindergarten through 12th grade to verify their students are signed up for a free Student Transit Pass. The pass allows students to ride LTD buses for free through September 30, 2023. Students who received a free Student Transit Pass last year, or this summer, must verify by September 30, 2022 that their pass for the 2022-23 school year is active, so their fare-free bus riding is not interrupted. Students who did not have a pass last year can sign up for one at their school’s office.
The Student Transit Pass is available on an app or tap card. Students, parents, and guardians have two ways to verify that a new pass has been issued:
Mobile App: Click the wallet button in the lower right-hand corner of the Umo Mobility app. The “Passes” tab of “My Wallet” will display all current passes. If it does not display a Student Transit Pass for 22/23, please visit the school office to have the pass renewed.
Tap Card: Register the card and create an account at UmoPass.com. The “My Wallet” tab will display any passes that are currently on the tap card. The school office can also verify the tap card’s status.
During the 2021-2022 school year, more than 9,000 area students took advantage of the free Student Transit Pass program.
