This program is currently available on bus services provided by Auburn Transit and local fixed-route services provided by Placer County Transit (PCT) and Roseville Transit (not available on PCT and/or Roseville Transit commuter services and on-demand services). Just show your valid Sierra College Student ID to the bus operator when boarding the bus and you will have a free ride to the many great destinations in Placer County that our transit services provide access to.

South Placer Bus Pass Subsidy Program

Through a partnership with the Western Placer Consolidated Transportation Services Agency (WPCTSA), the South Placer Bus Pass Subsidy Program provides eligible social service, local government and nonprofit agencies with a subsidy reimbursement for the purchase of bus passes that can be used to ride public transit services operated by Auburn Transit, Placer County Transit (PCT) and Roseville Transit. This program is meant to help offset costs associated with public transit services used for non-emergency medical appointments, the pharmacy, SSI, Health and Human Services, WIC, Housing Authority, and other assistance programs. Visit the WPCTSA's website for more information about this subsidy program.
