The North County Transit District is partnering with schools in the San Diego area to provide students, faculty and staff with discounted transit passes, according to SignOnSanDiego.com.
The district issued approximately 449 discount bus-and-rail passes for the current school year at California State University San Marcos. With a 7,800-student population, the University of San Diego has also teamed with NCTD to launch a pilot discount transit program.
The current discount cards would are good for Coaster and Sprinter trains and Breeze buses, as well as San Diego’s Metropolitan Transit System trolleys and buses.
NCTD added that it wants to eventually create a program, attaching a sticker to the university ID cards of students and employees. The formal launch would be in January 2012.
