Need a Ride to Class?

No Problem.

As part of a new partnership with LYNX, Valencia College students and employees will now be able to ride the LYNX system absolutely free.

Pick up your LYNX sticker and get to class for free.

Beginning August 15, 2017, free bus services will be available on all LYNX fixed-routes and NeighborLink routes during times in which LYNX is in service.

To ride for free, students must show their current Valencia ID with the official LYNX sticker validation upon boarding the bus. LYNX stickers are available by request and can be picked up at any campus security office.

Stickers will be valid for one academic year.

If a valid, current Valencia ID is not presented when boarding, then the full fare must be paid to ride the bus. A grace period will be in effect until October 1, 2017. During this time, students and employees will be able to board the bus using their Valencia ID. After the grace period, an official LYNX sticker validation will be required.

About the Partnership

As part of the new partnership, Valencia College will pay LYNX an annual service fee for transit services for Valencia students and employees. The college will not pass this cost on to the students, but will fund directly to LYNX. This allows currently enrolled students, as well as full- and part-time employees, to ride the LYNX system for free.

The agreement also involves larger community collaboration initiatives. In addition to the free transportation to and from the college, Valencia will work with LYNX on other efforts, including:
