Faculty, staff, full-time students, and SPCS certificate or degree-seeking students are eligible to receive a GRTC tap card, which allows for free ridership on the GRTC bus services. All eligible members must register each academic year by submitting this form. The tap card will expire on August 31 of each year.

Employees’ tap card will be mailed to their campus department.  Employee tap cards are to be used solely for transportation to and from work at the University.

Resident student’s tap cards will be mailed to their campus address. Off-campus students’ passes will be mailed to the local address provided. Students may use their tap cards for any GRTC bus services for transportation to and around the City of Richmond.
