Nassau County's growing student population relies on NICE to get to their classes, to and from work, and to exciting local spots throughout Long Island. These students are showing that you don't need a car to move efficiently and inexpensively around the city. 

(Please note that student passes are available for high school aged students and younger and are not available for collage students.)
