Does the institution offer free or reduced price transit passes and/or operate a free campus shuttle?:
Yes

A brief description of the program(s), (s), including availability, participation levels, and specifics about discounts or subsidies offered (including pre-tax options):

Student transit passes are embedded in their student ID card. They are provided through a partnership with the Whatcom Transit Authority that is funded by the $25 transportation fee required each quarter for students taking 6 credits or more. The WWU quarterly bus pass costs less than any equivalent bus pass sold to the Bellingham public community by the Whatcom Transit Authority. Students taking less than 6 credits can opt-in to pay the fee, and become eligible to receive a bus pass. Employee bus passes are subsidized by WWU, with the employee paying a discounted rate of $58 for the academic year. The transportation fee also funds a student shuttle that operates late at night and on Sundays when city buses are not currently available.
