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

Monterey Salinas Transit


Hartnell College proudly joins with Monterey-Salinas Transit (MST) to announce that our students will be able to ride FREE on ALL MST routes simply by presenting their valid student ID card to the driver -- any day, any time. This service will begin on Aug. 12 and continue for at least the next year and hopefully into the future. The best way to continue it is to use it!


Here are the details:

This benefit, part of MST's Free Fare Zone program, replaces Hartnell's current arrangement with MST, in which students with a valid Hartnell ID paid half-fare on buses traveling to and from Hartnell campuses.  
The partnership 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. They will save money and reduce their carbon footprint.
