“The Green Pass program has been a tremendous success,” says Andy Kim, ACC director of environmental stewardship. “Since 2010, almost 4.5 million rides have been recorded – that’s a lot of money saved on transportation, and a lot of automotive emissions reduced.”
ACC has financed the Green Pass program with revenue from the college’s sustainability fee and from proceeds from a 2009 parking fee increase. The $25 fee – which is 70 percent less than a comparable Cap Metro pass – is necessary because of rising transit service costs and the popularity of the passes.
ACC parking permit fees for 2014-2015 will remain unchanged.
Students and employees can obtain a Green Pass at any campus Cashier Office beginning August 12. The pass is valid for one semester.
