Social Justice Transit Fund
Receive public transportation passes to and from social justice activism events and opportunities.
The Social Justice Transit Fund (SJTF) provides SEPTA passes to cover local public transportation to enable student participation in one-off social justice activism and learning. The fund is intended to be in support of participation in events that increase awareness, spread education, and demonstrate support for particular issues, populations, or ideas consistent with the CPGC’s mission to advance peace, social justice, and global citizenship. CPGC funding may not, however, be utilized to advance lobbying or activism on specific pieces of legislation or for or against specific candidates or office holders.
The SJTF is one of the many ways in which the College supports student travel into Philadelphia via public transportation and is offered in collaboration with the Marilou Allen Office of Service and Community Collaboration and The Student Leadership and Engagement Office. We encourage you to learn more about what types of SEPTA travel are supported by these offices and to stop by the CPGC Office, Founders 015, to pick up a SEPTA pass for any and all of these programs!
Each SEPTA pass is loaded with 2 rides and can be used on the Norristown High Speed Line (NHSL), Market-Frankford Line (MFL), buses, trolleys or the Subway (Broad Street Line) for transportation to and from Philadelphia.
How to get a SEPTA Pass:
Individuals: Self-service pick-up is available anytime (M - F) at the CPGC Office, Founders 015
Groups of 5 or more: Email hc-cpgctransit [at] haverford.edu and provide the purpose and goal of the travel, dates of travel, destination, # of confirmed participants, in accordance with these timeframes:
- 5-19 participants: at least three business days prior to the date of travel.
- 20 or more participants: preferably one week prior to the date of travel.
CPGC will confirm if your request can be accommodated and arrange a time for pass pick-up.
