The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (L.A. Metro) will expand its GoPass fareless pass program after the Los Angeles Community College District received a $1 million federal grant.

With funding from the Congressional Directed Funding process, L.A. Metro will be able to extend the GoPass program through the 2022-23 academic year for students of all 21 community colleges in Los Angeles County.

The GoPass program addresses transportation equity by increasing access to higher education, L.A. Metro officials said in a press release. All L.A. County community college students will be eligible for free rides on all L.A. Metro trains and buses.
