To promote and encourage riding public transit, PCC offers cost saving programs for both students and staff. TriMet tickets and passes are also available for purchase at all campus bookstores.
TriMet Student Select Pass: Winter 2018
Any student taking three or more credits may purchase a Student Select Pass. This is an all-zone pass good for travel on TriMet through March 31, 2018.
We sell a limited number of these passes for $150 on a first-come, first-served basis. Your student photo ID card is required when purchasing. Winter Term passes will be available for purchase December 27, 2017 – February 2, 2018 at Student Account Services.
TriMet faculty and staff passes
All PCC faculty and staff (including casual employees) can purchase a monthly TriMet pass on a pre-tax basis. For the average employee, this would reduce the cost by approximately 22%. Individual savings will depend on your income tax bracket.
To sign up or cancel the program, complete a pre-tax payroll deduction application and submit the completed form to the Payroll Department. Applications and cancellations may be made at any time, but must be received by Payroll prior to the 15th of each month to become effective by the following month.
Note: Neither PCC nor TriMet will be responsible for any lost or stolen passes and passes will not be replaced.
