How to Get Your DASB Eco Pass
Thank you for choosing De Anza College to pursue your academic career. As a De Anza student, you can enjoy unlimited rides on VTA bus and light rail lines.
A student is eligible to use the Eco Pass VTA transit pass provided that students are enrolled in classes for the quarter and their fees are paid or they are on an installment payment plan.
Follow These Steps . . .
||Register for classes and pay your fees
Go to MyPortal to register for your classes. You will be automatically charged a mandatory Eco Pass fee — Part-time students with 0 to 5.9 units pay $3 per quarter, part-time students with 6 to 11.9 units pay $4 per quarter, and full-time students with 12 or more units pay $5 per quarter.
||Get Your Personalized Clipper Card
You must get your personalized Clipper Card from the Office of College Life. KEEP THIS CARD, IT IS GOOD FOR MULTIPLE QUARTERS AND FOR LIFE BEYOND DE ANZA COLLEGE. Then once you pay all your De Anza College fees, your card is updated to work with VTA.
||Register Your Clipper Card Online with the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC)
||Go to www.clippercard.com and click on the "Register a card" link on the top left side of the page. You will need to create a My Clipper account. If you do not register your card and you lose it you will lose all non-Eco Pass values you have placed on the card. If you place other values on to the Clipper Card you will be able to use it for multiple transit agencies.
