Tri-Met Commuting: Pacific Pass
Pacific University is pleased to encourage and support alternative transportation and offer our employees the opportunity to purchase Tri-Met Universal Annual transportation passes at a great savings.
The pass is good for all times, all zones, bus, light rail and the Portland streetcar.
Pacific Passes are available to faculty and staff from Human Resources at the Forest Grove Campus and Carole Billings, Assistant to the Executive Dean, in Suite 101 of the Hillsboro Campus building. In order to purchase the pass, bring your Boxer ID Card and complete and sign a payroll deduction form which will allow the deduction of the pass cost on a pre-tax basis. The cost for the pass for the academic year September 1, 2012, through August 31, 2013, is $164.66 and will be deducted from the first check following sign-up.
The pass validation sticker will be placed on your Boxer ID Card and this must be carried with you as proof of fare payment. No validation stickers will be issued without a valid Boxer ID Card.
Pacific Pass Payroll deduction forms are available on the HR Forms page.
Note: if you were to purchase a yearly all zone Tri-Met pass, it would cost $1,200, so you can see this is a significant savings when purchased through Pacific University. Visit the Trimet Fare Chart for more fare information.
