From Spokane Transit Authority:
Nearly one million bus rides were taken last year by students, faculty and staff of Eastern Washington University, thanks to the university’s decade-long partnership with Spokane Transit Authority.
Known as the Eagle Pass, the program was launched in 2003 and allows cardholders unlimited use of STA’s bus system. It is funded by the university and the student body and is a real bargain for participants, particularly students on a fixed income like Katie Myers, an EWU graduate student who says, “the Eagle Pass definitely helps me to keep my waitressing job in Spokane while I’m going to school. The fact that it’s so economical fits my ‘poor-student’ budget perfectly.”
