BCTC students to be provided with free “class pass”

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ)- An agreement has been reached by Bluegrass Community and Technical College (BCTC) and Lextran to provide students with a free ride to Lexington BCTC campuses.

The agreement was reached on Monday, July 24th and will start on August 1st.

The new pre-paid program will be known as the “BCTC Class Pass.”

BCTC saw a need to encourage students to take the bus to class due to parking hassles and changes around campus.

Lextran’s program with UK has been a success and they saw this as a perfect opportunity to help BCTC students as well.

BCTC students, faculty, and staff in Lexington will be able to utilize the pass.

Any route in Lexington will be accessible with the pass.

Students can get the passes on a first-come, first-serve basis.

In order to get a class pass you must provide a valid BCTC student ID or employee ID number.

BCTC students will be able to request a BCTC class pass online.

Lextran will provide new riders with route information and how to use the pass.

More information and details will be announced the first week of classes.
