* PRESTO Bus Pass Fall Announcement *
Students who paid the bus pass fee for the fall semester will receive a refund on their Mohawk College financial account. Note that for students who can demonstrate financial needs, the Mohawk Students' Association (MSA) has worked with the Mohawk College Financial Assistance department to set an MSA Transit Bursary (link). The application details for the MSA Transit Bursary will be released in the coming weeks.
Please remember to hold on to your receipts and stay tuned for more details.
Please note that due to the fact that majority of classes have been moved to an online format, the Fall bus pass has been suspended.
Students who may wish to still use the bus, will be required to load funds onto their PRESTO card in order to use the bus. We would recommend that you consider the number of times you may need to ride the bus in a month and determine which will be least expensive – individual rides, or a monthly pass.
