Free Rides with Kern Transit
Bakersfield College has teamed up with Kern Transit to offer free rides to all enrolled Bakersfield College students with a valid BC student ID. Free rides began Saturday, August 18, 2018 and will continue through the end of finals week on Saturday, December 8, 2018. The program will resume when the spring semester starts in January 2019.
Students can ride free on ALL 100-numbered routes, not just on routes to and from the Panorama campus, so they can save money commuting all around Kern County. The eight Routes & Schedules include:
- 100 - Bakersfield to Lancaster
- 110 - Bakersfield to Delano
- 115 - Bakersfield to Lost Hills
- 120 - Taft to Bakersfield
- 130 - Frazier Park to Bakersfield
- 140 - Lamont to Bakersfield North
- 145 - Lamont to Bakersfield South
- 150 - Bakersfield to Lake Isabella.
Students who choose to ride with Kern Transit will not have to struggle with traffic or find parking, and they can focus on their studies as they commute to school. By using public transit, students will also be limiting emissions, helping to improve the air quality in the Central Valley. These efforts are funded by a grant from the Low Carbon Transit Operations Program, which provides operating and capital assistance for transit agencies to reduce greenhouse gas emission and improve mobility, with a priority of serving disadvantaged communities. The grant would not have been possible without the support of our public officials, like Kern County Supervisor David Couch.
