Sustainable Transportation

local Transit

Students who are interested can purchase bus passes directly from the local transit in Kingston, Brockville, or Cornwall, often at a discounted rate for post-secondary students. We encourage students to leave their car at home and use public transportation to reduce their carbon footprint, save money, and save time looking for a parking spot on campus.

Students looking to purchase a bus pass for the fall semester can now do so through the Kingston Transit website.

The cost of the pass is $119 and the fall semester pass will be valid until January 3, 2022.

Once you purchase the pass you will receive an email from the Digital ID 123 Card App with instructions for downloading and activating your virtual pass. You will then present your pass by showing your phone screen when required to access Kingston Transit. When purchasing the pass you will be required to provide your SLC email address for verification.
