FAQs

Why do College of Marin students get free transit access?

In the Spring semester of 2015, COM students voted, with a 72% approval rate, to have the Board of Trustees of the Marin Community College District approve a policy to require all College of Marin students enrolled in one or more units of credit or non-credit instruction, during fall, spring, or summer semesters, to pay a transportation fee. This fee enables all College of Marin students to receive access to free local bus transportation via Marin Transit during their enrollment period. In addition to free access to all current transit services, the fee helps to provide additional service to campus, including Route 122.

I don’t plan to use my COM Card to ride the bus. Can I get a refund?

No. Free access to Marin Transit with a COM Card is a group benefit and the cost is distributed among all College of Marin students.

Can I give my COM Card to a friend to use or can I sell it to someone else?

No. A COM Card is valid only for the currently registered and qualified student. Do not sell, reproduce, share, or give away your COM Card or validation sticker. Misuse of your COM Card is a violation of the student conduct code and will result in disciplinary action.

I am not a registered College of Marin student. Can I buy a COM Card to get free access to Marin Transit?

No. Free access to Marin Transit with a COM Card is a group benefit offered only to currently registered College of Marin students. It is not available to the general public.
