MHCC Offers Students Discounted TriMet Passes
Posted: November 27, 2012
Mt. Hood Community College (MHCC) is making the commute to and from campus more affordable for students by offering a 10 percent discount on public transportation. Discounted tickets and passes are available to enrolled students.
To purchase, students must bring a valid driver’s license, student photo identification (ID) or other photo ID and a copy of their current class schedule to the Bookstore. Hours are Monday – Thursday, 7:45 a.m. – 6:15 p.m. and Friday 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Prices are subject to change due to TriMet fare increases.

In summer 2012, The MHCC District Board of Education voted to adopt an access fee for all students to offset the cost of maintaining some campus services. Adoption of the Access Fee included elimination of parking permits and addition of the TriMet discount. The discount originally included only passes, but is being expanded to include tickets in order to support the varied schedules of MHCC students. Ticket sales will have limits on the quantities purchased, to ensure their use by MHCC students only.
The Gresham Campus is served by buses 80, 81 and 20. The Maywood Park Campus is served by buses 71 and 87. The Bruning Center for Allied Health Education is served by the blue MAX line and bus number 4. (CLICK HERE to view flyer in PDF format.)
