Attention LANE COUNTY students!

FREE Transit Pass for Students Grades K-12.

About the Student Transit Pass (Lane County):

The goal of the Student Transit Pass is to help families by reducing transportation costs and the demands on parents to transport their children activities. An additional goal is to create life-long transit users, which reduces the impact of single-occupant vehicles on the environment.

Free student transit fares are made available through a grant to LTD from the State of Oregon’s Statewide Transportation Improvement Fund (STIF) approved through House Bill 2017.

High-speed internet is a necessity – especially for students. That’s why the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law created the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) to lower internet costs. ACP provides:

* Up to $30/month off your household’s internet bills (or $75/month on Tribal lands), and

* A one-time $100 discount off a laptop, tablet, or computer.

Many internet service providers across the country offer high-speed internet plans that are fully covered by ACP – so millions of families can now get high-speed internet without paying a dime.
