WHAT’S A CLASS PASS?

The Class Pass is a reusable electronic fare card. It gives students currently enrolled in at least one unit at University of La Verne unlimited rides on Foothill Transit buses! It also helps reduce traffic and parking congestion around campus.

It’s accepted on all Foothill Transit Local and Silver Streak bus lines, which can connect you to 22 cities in the San Gabriel and Pomona Valleys, plus Downtown Los Angeles.

Best of all, the Class Pass is completely free! As long as you’re enrolled in at least one unit at La Verne, or you’re a full-time faculty or staff member, your Class Poss won’t cost you a thing.

HOW DO I GET MY CLASS PASS?

If you’re a full-time or part-time student currently enrolled at University of La Verne, you can get your Class Pass at the Registrar’s Office! Just remember to bring your student ID with you.

If you already have the Class Pass, it will automatically be reloaded before the beginning of the semester. To activate your Class Pass, just use it at least once within the first two weeks of classes. If you go beyond two weeks, you’ll have to visit the Registrar’s Office to reload it.

WILL THE CLASS PASS ALWAYS BE AVAILABLE?

Yes! The Class Pass began as a three-semester-long test program that measured the need for affordable transit options for La Verne students. It was a phenomenal success, and now the program is here to stay!

The TAP cards that Class Passes are loaded on will eventually expire. Your TAP Card could expire as soon as October 2016. All passes loaded onto the TAP Card will not work once it expires. Be sure to check yours today!

Checking the status of your TAP Card is easy, and you have several options.
•    Visit the Registrar’s Office and ask when your TAP Card will expire.
•    Visit your local Foothill Transit Store and ask a Customer Service Representative when your TAP Card will expire.
•    Call 1-866-TAP-TO-GO (827-8646) to speak with a TAP representative to find out when your TAP Card will expire.
•    Email customerservice@taptogo.net and a TAP representative will be able to assist you.

If your TAP Card is expiring or expired, you can transfer your Class Pass to a new TAP Card. First, you will need to purchase a new TAP Card for $2 at your local Transit Store location. Then, you can call TAP at the number above – 1-866-TAP-TO-GO (827-8646) – and let the representative know that you want to transfer your TAP Card balance. You’ll need to have both your expiring and new TAP Cards handy to complete the process. New TAP Cards are good for approximately ten years. Note: it may take up to 48 hours for the transfer to be completed.

If you have any questions about your TAP Card expiring, call Foothill Transit at 1-800-RIDE-INFO (743-3463).

WHAT IF I DON’T KNOW HOW TO RIDE THE BUS?

No problem.

Use Google Transit — or the Trip Planner at the top of every page on our website — to find out what bus line you need and where your nearest bus stop is located. Check NEXTRIP for real-time updates that show exactly when your bus will arrive.

Once you know where you’re going, here’s how to ride:

  1. 1. Find your bus stop – it’ll be marked with a large sign in Foothill Transit blue and green.
  2. 2. Make sure you board the right bus – when a bus pulls up to the stop, look at its line number and destination on the sign above the windshield.
  3. 3. Pay your fare – just touch your Class Pass to the “TAP” symbol right on the farebox and listen for the beep.
  4. 4. Move as far back into the bus as you can, and find a seat or hold onto the handrail – please leave seats at the front open for elderly and disabled passengers.
  5. 5. Request a stop – when the bus approaches your stop, pull the cord ore press the tape running along the windows, then exit through the doors in the back!
