The Class Pass is a pilot program that gives students currently enrolled at The Claremont Colleges, and faculty and staff employed at The Claremont Colleges or The Claremont Colleges Services (TCCS) unlimited rides on Foothill Transit buses. It also helps people who don’t ride the bus by reducing traffic and parking congestion around campus and in the community.

The Class Pass is accepted on all Foothill Transit Local and Silver Streak buses which can connect you to 22 different cities throughout the San Gabriel and Pomona Valleys, and downtown Los Angeles.


If you’re a full-time or part-time student currently enrolled at The Claremont Colleges or faculty and staff at The Claremont Colleges or The Claremont Colleges Services (TCCS), you can get your Class Pass at the TCCS Connection (Honnold/Mudd Library)! Just remember to bring your school ID.

What if I lose my pass?

Bummer. But not a huge deal. Just go back to the Connection to report your Class Pass as lost and pay a $10 replacement fee — you’ll get a new TAP card on the spot!

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 to the back 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 or press the tape running along the windows, then exit through the doors in the back!
