RTA Semester Pass Plan Announced!

Effective Fall term 2017, RTA, in partnership with Sinclair Community College, will be providing an RTA pass plan to be purchased by semester. Beginning Fall term 2017, students may purchase a semester pass for a flat rate of $175 per semester. This reflects a cost savings of $100 compared to purchasing
an RTA pass on a monthly basis for a semester!
The Fall 2017 pass will be valid from August 7 through December 24, and are now available for purchase in the Sinclair Bookstore. The purchase is financial aid eligible for qualifying students once Fall financial aid book charges open on August 11. We encourage you to consider this new RTA option!

In order to purchase this RTA semester pass, a student must:

  • Be a currently enrolled Sinclair Community College student and present a valid Tartan I.D. Card upon purchase of a pass from the Sinclair Bookstore.
  • Show a valid Tartan I.D. Card AND the RTA semester bus pass upon boarding any RTA bus.

Students are encouraged to consider this RTA option!
