Will you be living and working in Ithaca through the summer? Taking summer classes on campus? Want to ride the bus and avoid the pain of high gas prices? TCAT reminds you that they offer a summer unlimited ride bus pass for Ithaca College students which is good from June 1st through August 15th. The special discounted rate for this IC summer pass is $45 for Zone 1 (covering most of the City of Ithaca; Zone 2 summer passes, covering extended areas of the city, cost $60).

Purchase your bus pass online at the TCAT website and the pass privileges are loaded right onto your IC student ID card. Then all you need to do to board the bus is present your ID at the bus stop. Use your unlimited ride bus pass to check out everything Ithaca has to offer all summer long! Go to the Shops at Ithaca Mall and shop or go to the movies! Go to Stewart Park and relax by the lakeshore! Go to the Farmers’ Market and stock up on farm-fresh fruits and veggies! Go to the Commons and just watch the world go by! Go to the Ithaca Festival and the GrassRoots Festival! So much to do, so much to see – no need to drive yourself! Leave all the hassle of driving and parking to TCAT!
