Getting back and forth to college classes just got more affordable for Hartnell College students!

Monterey Salinas Transit


Hartnell College proudly joins Monterey-Salinas Transit (MST) to announce that Hartnell College students will be able to ride FREE on ALL MST routes simply by presenting their valid electronic student ID to the driver  -- any day, any time.

Here are the details:

This benefit, part of MST's Free Fare Zone program, is being funded in large part by a greenhouse gas-reduction grant that MST is using to support Hartnell. The Hartnell Community College District Governing Board gave its support to the arrangement on Aug. 6. Students will not only be able to ride free to all three of campuses, but throughout their daily lives.
