Qualifying groups can get free transportation to youth field trips on Intercity Transit’s regular bus service.

What is a Class Pass?

A Class Pass is a free way for educators and youth organizations to take field trips using regularly scheduled Intercity Transit buses. Along with a Class Pass, qualifying groups can request a classroom presentation from an Intercity Transit educator to prepare students for their bus ride. Class Passes make public transit accessible to more youth, a goal of the Intercity Transit Walk N Roll youth education program.

Who qualifies for a Class Pass?

If your group meets the following criteria, it qualifies for a Class Pass. Is your group:

  • From a public or nonprofit school or youth organization?
  • Made up of youth in grades K-12?
  • Between 10 and 40 people, including students, chaperones, and teachers? (Groups larger than 40 need to get two separate Class Passes and travel on different buses).
  • Starting and ending its trip near an Intercity Transit bus stop? Find a list of schools located near bus routes on our website. 

How to get a Class Pass

  • Submit an online request form at least three weeks prior to your trip. On the form, please tell us if you would like a classroom presentation from an Intercity Transit educator.
  • If you request a classroom presentation, one of our educators will contact you to make arrangements.
  • We will send you an email with the Class Pass and bus route information.
  • On the day of your trip, print the Class Pass and show it to the Intercity Transit bus driver when you board.

Preparing your students for the bus

To ensure a safe and enjoyable trip for your students and other passengers, please prepare your students for their bus ride by sharing the following information:

  • Always be quiet and respectful to other riders.
  • There are limited seats on the bus, so some students may need to stand. Always hold on to a hand railing when standing.
  • Never cross in front of the Intercity Transit bus unless it is stopped at a traffic light.
