Frequently Asked Questions

Do students who qualify for the C-Tran pass in Battle Ground, Camas or Washougal school districts also qualify for the Youth Opportunity Pass?

No. The C-TRAN pass is available to a wider group and is no longer affiliated with the Youth Opportunity Pass. This pass is only available to currently enrolled students in the Evergreen or Vancouver School Districts and/or eligible students in grades 6 – 12 who live within Vancouver city limits. 

Students in Evergreen and Vancouver Public Schools who are issued a valid C-TRAN pass are not automatically enrolled for a Youth Opportunity Pass; they still must complete the application process to obtain a Youth Opportunity Pass.

Do homeschooled students who live in the Evergreen and Vancouver Public Schools districts qualify for the Youth Opportunity Pass?

Yes. Bring your district letter of intent to homeschool to Firstenburg or Marshall community center. Students must be affiliated and registered through Evergreen Public Schools or Vancouver Public Schools to qualify for the Youth Opportunity Pass if they do not reside within Vancouver city limits.

Do private school or unaffiliated homeschool students qualify for the Youth Opportunity Pass?

Yes, as long as you live within Vancouver city limits. If you live outside Vancouver city limits, you do not qualify.
