The University's Jack Pass program encourages mass transit and reduced fuel consumption by enabling students, faculty, and staff to travel on Humboldt County bus systems. Save car and parking expenses, and help protect the environment at the same time!

During the Fall and Spring semesters, all HSU students will have unlimited free ride access on the Redwood Transit System (RTS) buses, which serve the Route 101 corridor from Trinidad to Scotia, including Valley East and Valley West in Arcata, the Eureka Transit System (ETS) buses which serve the city of Eureka and Arcata & Mad River Transit System (A&MRTS) which serves the Arcata area.

Currently registered students simply slide their HSU student identification card through the bus fare box and receive a free ride.

Staff, faculty, and Extended Education participants are also granted the same level of access for $60 semester. 

During the summer session, there is a small fee of $45 to enjoy Jack Pass.

These fees can be paid at the Student Financial Services window on the second floor of the Student Business Services building.
