When you renew your car tabs, you can help someone in need.


  • When you get your tabs back, you will receive an offer for eight free bus passes.
  • Check the box to have them sent to you.
  • When you receive them, either give them to your favorite nonprofit, or send them to us.

RCF has set up a tracking system to disburse the passes to the groups who need them most. It's easy, it's free, and you might just help someone get to a job interview, a doctor's appointment, or to the food bank.

On May 22, RCF presented $25,500 in scholarship awards to fourteen deserving students. Our scholarship program includes awards from $500 to $5,000 to graduating high school seniors, college graduate students, learning disabled students, students pursuing a teaching degree, even students pursuing a degree in journalism or communications.


For the first time this year, we also honored individuals who were awarded art scholarships from the Puget Sound Group of Northwest Painters'  "Rudolph Bundas Memorial Fund."
