Free SunLine Bus Rides

Great News! All students enrolled at College of the Desert this fall can use their new student ID cards to ride the SunBus for FREE.

SunLine Transit Agency and College of the Desert are partnering to provide students the unlimited SunBus rides as part of SunLine’s new Haul Pass program.

To be eligible, students must be enrolled at College of the Desert. Students will use their active student ID card by swiping them through the SunBus card reader on the fare box. Should you require assistance, bus operators can help.

Students who have yet to obtain their college ID cards can obtain their ID at multiple locations. For the Palm Springs Campus, visit the Student Services in PS07, or the Administration Office in PS01.

IDs are issued at the Palm Springs Campus Monday through Thursday from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. You will need to show some form of photo ID (either a driver’s license, state-issued ID, or a recent High School Photo ID). You also need to present either your official class schedule or registration statement to confirm enrollment. You can show either of these on your phones or on the computers in the Office of Student Life.

ID cards are also issued at the Palm Desert and Indio Campus locations. For a full listing of hours and locations, please contact the Office of Student Life at 760-862-1317.
