Two Cards YOU need
Get your Eco Pass. It's good for unlimited rides on VTA and now conveniently loaded onto a Clipper card that’s good for the entire time you’re enrolled at De Anza.
Get the new DASB card. If you didn't pick up yours in fall, you’ll want it this quarter for services campuswide. Plus the card is good for discounts at area businesses.
