“The City is committed to making public transportation as affordable as possible for all members of Santa Clarita,” commented Mayor Marsha McLean. “The Rider Relief Program is a great resource for low-income community members to use public transportation at an affordable price.”
Riders eligible for the program will receive a six month coupon book complete with a $10 monthly subsidy for each month to use towards the purchase of a local Santa Clarita Transit monthly bus pass. As a result, the cost of an unlimited-use monthly pass will decrease to $20. Patrons are required to prove their income in order to qualify for the program.
Eligible riders include adult regular riders, Senior/Disabled/Medicare, K-12 grade students, and college/vocational students who are pre-qualified by a participating community-based agency.
To apply for the Rider Relief Transportation Program, visit the Santa Clarita WorkSource Center in Suite 250 at the College of the Canyons University Center, located at 26455 Rockwell Canyon Road. The Rider Relief Transportation Program is brought to you by the Santa Clarita Transit, Goodwill of Southern California, Metro, FAME Assistance Corporation, and the Human Services Association.
