As of today, Feb. 1, students and employees at Seminole State College will be able to ride any Lynx bus free of charge.
The announcement went out earlier today via a press release, that enrolled students and employees would have access to unlimited free rides. The service is available by downloading the LYNX PawPass, downloading a digital ticket and then presenting both the ticket and a school ID when getting on the bus.
“As I have stated many times and it still rings true, public transportation is about providing access, which in turn provides opportunity for the entire community,” said LYNX CEO Edward Johnson. “This is why we are establishing transportation partnerships with colleges and universities, like Seminole State. Together we can remove a hurdle and provide the opportunity to make a difference in the Central Florida region.”
According to the agreement, Seminole State will be funding the entire service, which includes Lynx fixed routes and NeighborhoodLink routes.
This announcement comes less than a week after Valencia
said it would be providing students and employees free rides on Lynx, and only a couple weeks after UCF
did the same.
