Your Student ID is your bus pass

Reliable bus service for high school students

SPS Connect is a Spokane Public Schools (SPS) program supported by Spokane Transit to help give high school students easy access to free public transit. Student ID cards are good for unlimited rides on STA while the student is enrolled in an SPS high school or program.

Which is right for you?

The SPS Connect program and a Rider’s License Connect card both offer options that give students unlimited rides without needing to pay a fare.
