Long Beach Transit Fee Waiver

Published August 2, 2019

The Long Beach Transit (LBT) Fee Waiver program was created in order to ensure that CSULB transportation services remain inclusive to all students. Eligible students receive a $40 transportation fee waiver for unlimited LBT services throughout the semester.

If you plan on utilizing this waiver program, please review the eligibility requirements below and refrain from purchasing a pass until your fee waiver application can be processed as no refunds will be provided.

Eligibility Requirements

Eligible students will exhibit a financial assistance need based on the current financial aid criteria. Qualified students will receive a full transportation fee waiver for the semester. Through this program, the $40 fees for transportation using Long Beach Transit will be waived for individuals who meet the following financial aid eligibility criteria:

  • Have filed a FAFSA or DREAM Financial Aid Application
  • Have an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) amount of $6,000 or less

If you meet the above criteria, you may apply for the LBT Fee Waiver program. If you will be applying for the waiver, please do not purchase the semester LBT pass until your waiver application is reviewed and processed, as no refunds will be provided.

Students who do not meet the minimum eligibility requirements may purchase unlimited TAP services through the university at 75% off the regular Long Beach Transit student rate. Those who have participated in the program in the past may purchase the pass on the parking portal during the weeks preceding the upcoming semester. First time participants must visit the Cashiers Window in Brotman Hall in order to obtain the TAP sticker and sign the program terms and conditions.

How To Apply

Step 1

Fill out the online LBT Fee Waiver application. Users will receive a confirmation email upon completion.

Step 2

Each application will be reviewed in the order that it was received and an email will be sent to the student informing them if they meet the minimum financial need requirements.

Step 3

If approved, existing LBT pass holders will receive an email confirmation that their LBT services have been activated. Individuals new to the bus program will receive a confirmation email with instructions to visit the Cashiers Office in Brotman Hall to purchase the required TAP sticker for a one-time fee of $5.
