Here is how this works:
1. You purchase a voucher at one of the above schools
2. You bring the voucher to Columbia Station to obtain your pass. You must come to Columbia Station in person to get your pass, as we will need to take your picture. Please bring some form of ID with you.
3. If your school is not taking part in this program, you are still able to purchase a pass. Come to Columbia Station and a Guest Services representative will prepare a pass for you. Just bring in picture ID and proof of enrollment at your school. The pass will still cost the same, all of which goes to Link Transit.

NOTE: Student Freedom Passes are not transferrable and not refundable in the event you move, change schools or schedules, or quit riding Link Transit. Lost passes will be replaced one time at a cost of $10.
