Did you know that as a Tidewater Community College student you can ride Hampton Roads Transit for just $25 a semester and only $15 for Summer Session?

Now is the time to save money on your commuting costs and reduce your carbon footprint.

TCC students receive discounted access to HRT’s public transit network of buses, ferries, Metro Area Express (MAX) routes, and Norfolk’s light rail system through the GoSemester Pass program.

Starting next week, HRT’s TRAFFIX representatives will be on TCC’s campuses to help you get rewarded for commuting differently. In addition, you’ll get a chance to spin the TRAFFIX prize wheel to win a commuter prize.

HRT GoSemester pass event dates include:

Portsmouth Campus Student Center
Sept. 12
10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Virginia Beach Campus Student Center
Sept. 15
9 a.m. – 11 a.m.

Norfolk Campus Student Center
Sept. 19
10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Chesapeake Campus Student Center
Sept. 28
10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

To be eligible for a GoSemester pass, you must be currently enrolled at TCC, and have paid tuition or been awarded financial aid. Just present your TCC ID at any campus business office and pay the fee for the semester. You may use your financial aid award to purchase a GoSemester Pass only during the available charge period

Additionally, students with disabilities who are approved by HRT to utilize Para-Transit can receive passes at a discounted rate of $2 per pass for each of the days they have classes (plus one additional day). Visit an Educational Accessibility Office for help accessing this service.
