After a successful pilot program in the spring providing free transit service to all Texas Southmost College students, TSC has expanded the free service citywide via Brownsville Metro to its students.
The free citywide transit service for TSC students began Aug. 26 with the start of the college’s fall 2019 semester. It will continue through Aug. 2020. The program is a partnership between TSC, Brownsville Metro and the City of Brownsville.
“We are excited to continue our collaboration with Brownsville Metro and the City of Brownsville to provide the free transit service to our TSC students,” said Adela G. Garza, TSC Board of Trustees chairwoman. “We understand that something like transportation can be an obstacle for a student continuing their education. We’re happy to be expanding the free service citywide so that we can remove that barrier and our students may have the opportunity to continue their pursuit of a higher education.”
TSC students can use all fixed-route services free of charge by providing a valid TSC student identification card. The service will end on Aug. 28, 2020.
