Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority announces a new student pass

"Charlie Card" reduces all student fares by $1.50

A press release from the Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority says that as part of its commitment to provide safe, reliable access to education, the CCRTA announced a new Student Pass.

Students who come into the Hyannis Transportation Center and show a current student ID will receive a sturdy plastic Charlie Card, after adding value, which reduces their fixed route bus fare to $1.50.

"Value added" means an enhancement is added to a product or service by a company before the product is offered to customers. In marketing it is the creation of a competitive advantage by bundling, combining, or packaging features and benefits that result in greater customer acceptance.

Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority Administrator, Thomas Cahir states, “We transport a lot of students, especially to the Charter schools throughout the Cape and we are committed to making it as easy and affordable as possible.”

Value is added as you board the bus, at the Hyannis Transportation Center or online More information about the Student Pass can be found at
