TCRP Synthesis Examines Student Pass Programs

The Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) recently released Synthesis 131: College Student Transit Pass Programs.

The synthesis shows how a student pass program can benefit both universities and public transit agencies, providing guaranteed revenue to agencies while significantly increasing their ridership and helping to ease campus congestion.

This mutually beneficial program can be customized to the unique needs and circumstances of each educational institution and public transit agency. Other benefits include reduced demand for campus parking, use of off-peak public transit capacity, improved college affordability and improved public transit agency performance.

TCRP’s research combines a survey of existing programs, related literature and several case examples representing different models of programs to assist public transit agencies, universities and communities with the development and evaluation of their own college student transit pass program.
