The 2016-2017 school year marks the second year of the successful METRO Transit Pass Program for Portland Public Schools’ high school students, made possible through a partnership between Greater Portland Transit District METRO and PPS. This program provides a free METRO Student Transit Pass to all Portland high school students enrolled in Portland, Deering and Casco Bay high schools, including students living within two miles of school. The pass allows unlimited use of METRO bus routes during the academic school year, including weekends and break periods.

Some important METRO pass reminders for students:

• Portland Public High School Students should show the METRO driver their Transit Pass when they board the bus.

• Students who have not received their 2016-2017 Transit Pass, can ride METRO to/from school without a pass through Friday, Sept. 9.

• Students need to have an updated METRO 2016-2017 Student Transit Pass by Monday, Sept. 12.

• New 2016/2017 passes are available at Portland, Deering and Casco Bay high schools.  

• Schedules and route maps are available online, on buses and at locations throughout the service, including the METRO Pulse at Elm Street, the downtown transit hub and information center. It's located on Elm Street, across from the Portland Library. NOTE: All METRO schedules have been updated. Make sure you have a current schedule (dated August 26, 2016)

• The policy for replacement passes has been updated. If a student loses his/her pass and needs a replacement:

*1st pass lost: FREE

*2nd pass lost: $5

*3 or more passes lost: $10
