DTA

The College provides free DTA bus service for all faculty, staff and students with a valid CSS ID card. All you need to do is get on the bus and show your CSS ID. This is the ultimate cost savings program for everyone and goes a long way to saving our environment from green house gasses produced by all those cars.

Parents, your student no longer needs a car to take to school. Keep it home and save money!
