WWU faculty and staff Viking Xpress bus passes for fall quarter 2009 and academic year 2009-2010 are now available through the Sustainable Transportation Office.

Due to WTA rate increases for the coming year, the cost to the employee for an academic year pass will increase to $58 this year. The employee cost for a fall, winter, or spring single quarter pass is $23.

Employees wishing to purchase a bus pass should go to the transportation Web site at http://www.wwu.edu/transportation or call the Sustainable Transportation office at ext. 7960. Passes are sent through campus mail unless arrangements for personal pickup are made. Temporary faculty, staff and Dining Services employees also are eligible to purchase the Viking Xpress Pass.

Fall quarter passes are valid from Sept. 20 to Jan. 2, 2010. Academic year passes are valid from Sept. 20 to June 19, 2010.
