• RE: Free Transit Passes for students at eligible Livermore Valley Joint USD schools for the 2019-2020 school year

     

    Dear Students and Family Members,

     

    For the 2019-20 school year, registered students at the Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District listed on the back of this letter are eligible to receive a free Student Transit Pass – a Youth Clipper card that provides unlimited free access to AC Transit bus services as well as a 50 percent discount on BART trips and youth discounts on other transit systems. These passes are being distributed as part of the Student Transit Pass Program, sponsored by the Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) and funded through Measure BB, the local transportation sales tax measure.

     

    To participate you must complete a Student Transit Pass Program Youth Clipper card application. Students under the age of 18 must have their parent or legal guardian complete and sign the application as indicated. Once the form is submitted and verified by school staff, students will receive a youth Clipper card within one month. You can obtain an application at orientation or at the school office starting the first day of school, or download a copy from the school’s website, complete it, and return it to the school office. 

     

    If you had a Student Transit Pass as part of the Pilot Program during the 2018-19 school year, your current card will expire on July 31, 2019. You must fill out a new application in order to receive a pass for the next school year.

     

    Questions may be directed to the staff contact for your school listed on the back of this letter or studentpass@alamedactc.org .

     

    Thank you,
