Vancouver, WA: C-TRAN, the City of Vancouver and other partners have extended the current Youth Opportunity Pass to be valid through September 30, 2018. The current 2017-18 passes, issued last school year, were set to expire on August 31. With students in several Clark County school districts not yet in school due to ongoing teacher strikes, C-TRAN will honor the current passes for an extra month. Students will receive their 2018-19 Youth Opportunity Pass stickers upon returning to school in September.

The Youth Opportunity Pass is available to all middle school and high school students in the Evergreen, Vancouver, Battle Ground, Camas and Washougal school districts. It allows students unlimited travel on C-TRAN’s Local routes in Clark County. The pass is free for students in participating districts; no restrictions apply.

Students enrolled in the Evergreen or Vancouver school districts, plus the Washington State School for the Blind and the Washington School for the Deaf, receive free access to the Marshall/Luepke and Firstenburg community centers in Vancouver with the Youth Opportunity Pass. As part of the extension, the City of Vancouver will continue to honor 2017-18 passes at both community centers through the end of September.
