Newsflash: Students sell their Class Passes to former students! OK, so you probably already knew that, but did you know that UCPD trolls craigslist looking to bust the sales? For reals.

Of course, those Class Passes are so alluring. Current students pay for the passes through mandatory fees. If former students want the same hookup, they’d have to shell out $560 for spring-summer AC Transit bus use, according to the Daily Cal. Damn.

Students also copy their passes and share them with friends, and their replicas are so good that the bus drivers can’t tell the difference. So what’s the moral of the story here? When in doubt, go to Copy Central–not craigslist. But you didn’t hear that from us.
