Monthly TriMet bus passes are sold to faculty and staff by pre-tax monthly payroll deduction. This can be arranged by contacting the campus transportation and parking office. 

Subsidized Bus Pass Policy

The Lewis & Clark subsidized TriMet bus pass purchase policy is as follows:

Only Lewis & Clark students, faculty, and staff are authorized to purchase and use subsidized monthly bus passes and trip tickets. Use of the pass by family, friends, or associates is a violation of this policy and is grounds for disqualification from future purchases of subsidized bus passes.

Only one (1) subsidized monthly bus pass purchase for each Lewis & Clark student, faculty member, or staff member is permitted.

For summer term, only those students or employees taking summer courses or working at the institution may purchase a subsidized permit. The intention of this subsidy is to reduce single occupancy vehicles to campus during this time frame.

Visit the Transportation and Parking permit system to purchase bus passes or bus ticket books.

Those who purchase subsidized TriMet monthly bus pass are prohibited from also purchasing a semester parking pass.
