Free Bay Transit fares for students riding to and from RCC campuses

Bay Transit is a nonprofit community transit service serving Charles City, Essex, Gloucester, King & Queen, King William, Lancaster, Mathews, New Kent, Northumberland, Richmond, and Westmoreland counties.

How to make arrangements for travel on Bay Transit:

  1. Call the Bay Transit ride line at 877-869-6046 at least 24 hours before you need a ride. (Tip: Calling even earlier increases the likelihood of accommodating your trip request).
  2. Identify yourself as an RCC student when making your reservation.  If you need transportation to RCC on a recurring basis, Bay Transit can also set you up with a “standing order” to ensure reservations are in place for future travel to and/or from RCC.
  3. Bay Transit can pick you up from home, work or an RCC campus Mondays through Fridays from 6am until 6pm.
  4. Be at the designated pick-up point at least five minutes prior to your scheduled departure.
  5. Show your valid RCC student ID card to the driver as you board the bus.
  6. Relax and enjoy the free ride on Bay Transit!
  7. Important: If you need to cancel a ride, please let Bay Transit know as soon as possible. Not canceling your ride in advance may be considered as a “no-show.”  Three no-shows or five same day cancellations may result in suspension of riding privileges

The RCC Educational Foundation is subsidizing the free fare program for RCC students.
