College Students!!!!   DID YOU  KNOW that Metro has a new program designed just for you?

It’s called “THE UNIVERSITY PASS.”

It has already start with American University.  American University students, including law and graduate students, now pay $130 per semester for the pass as part of their required fees.

This program seems to be working – because Documents show that American University students have taken more than 1 millions rides on Metro trains and buses since the program started last fall.

Most of the trips are outside of rush hour, when Metro had hoped the passes would increase ridership.

Metro staff said they hope to expand the pass to other local colleges this fall, which could include the University of Maryland, Howard University, Georgetown University, George Washington University and Prince George’s Community College.
So Students of these local Universities and Community College, look out for this excellent program from Metro!!!
