The city of Santa Clarita recently received the results of a ridership survey conducted by College of the Canyons to discover students' experience on city transit.

The survey asked COC students questions regarding their ridership experience during a three-week trial period in which the city of Santa Clarita provided students with free local transportation on City transit.

In response to overcrowded parking at the college, the city partnered with COC to provide the free local transit service to students or the first three weeks of fall semester. City Transit distributed free Transit Access Pass (TAP) cards to students, good for the free trial period.

"Each year thousands of students from Santa Clarita and beyond choose to pursue their higher education endeavors at College of the Canyons, which can result in congested parking," said Mayor Frank Ferry. "The city provided the free TAP cards at the beginning of the semester to help ease parking demand and congestion around the school, while educating students about the convenience of city transit."

More than 100 students completed the survey, with the majority of riders submitting positive feedback. Per the survey results, more than 8,000 COC riders used city transit during the trial period, with more than 400 riders using the promotional TAP pass each day.
