Parking & Transportation

  • Parking and Transportation

    All transportation services are supported by the transportation fee; therefore, require no additional cost for use.

    NFTA Student Transit Pass

    Funded by the college’s transportation fee, the NFTA CRAM (College Riders Accessing Metro) Pass program provides students with unlimited access to the NFTA Metro Bus and Rail System. Details regarding the routes and schedules may be found at the NFTA website. A CRAM Pass, along with a current ECC photo ID card, is required to use this service. CRAM Passes may be picked up at the designated locations (located on the left) around the 3rd week of classes. Starting the first day of classes, student ID’s may be used as a complimentary bus pass.

    Emergency Phones

    Blue-light emergency phones at various outdoor locations on campus.

    Shuttle Service

    Shuttle bus service is available to transport students between ECC’s three campuses, when classes are in session during the spring and fall semesters. Take advantage of this free service to attend athletic events, pursue classes at another campus, work-study, or get involved in Student Government!


  • At present, there is limited free student parking available at City Campus. Students must present a valid ECC student ID card and have a current parking permit displayed on their vehicle. Handicapped spaces are in designated spaces at Oak Street parking lot. These spaces are reserved for those vehicles with state or city disabled stickers.
