Learn how to get yours.
You'll Need Your DASB Card
The Office of College Life and DASB Card Office is closed during both winter and spring break. If you don't have a DASB card, stop by and get yours by the week of finals or you'll have to wait until the first week of the next quarter to start riding VTA for free.
When boarding a VTA bus, just show your validated DASB ID with the current VTA DASB Eco Pass sticker to the bus driver. On VTA light rail, present your validated DASB ID to the fare inspector upon request.
Currently seven bus lines — VTA routes 23, 25, 51, 53, 54, 55 and new 323 — stop at De Anza. Routes 51, 53, 54 and 55 connect to the Sunnyvale Caltrain Station. Route 51 connects to the Mountain View Caltrain Station.
When Can You Use the Eco Pass?
The DASB Eco Pass is valid seven days a week for VTA buses and light rail ONLY — starting the first valid date through the last valid date listed on that term's DASB Eco Pass sticker. If there is no easy route for you to commute by bus to school, you can still use the DASB Eco Pass on weekends or any other time that is convenient.
The DASB Eco Pass is not valid on ACE, Amtrak, BART, Caltrain, Highway 17 Express, Dumbarton Express, Monterey-Salinas Transit, and SamTrans.
Order Your Eco Pass Sticker
De Anza students who wish to use the Eco Pass must order the sticker each quarter through MyPortal. It will be mailed within a week after you order it.
When you receive your Eco Pass sticker, place it on your valid De Anza Student Body Card on the back in the left corner under the magnetic strip.

How is the Eco Pass Program Funded?
All enrolled De Anza students are eligible for the VTA DASB Eco Pass program through a mandatory quarterly fee,which was established by the De Anza Associated Student Body (DASB) during a spring 2011 proposition vote that passed 985 to 124 and was approved by the Foothill-De Anza Board of Trustees. Part-time students (11.5 or fewer units) pay $4, full-time students (12 or more units) pay $5 per quarter.
