All Hacienda employees and residents may ride the entire Wheels system for free by obtaining a Hacienda ECO Pass. As of July 1, 2011, an updated ECO Pass will be required for Hacienda employees and residents to board Wheels buses free of charge. Beginning June 6th, Hacienda will be distributing new ECO Pass stickers to current pass holders. On receipt, simply cover the old sticker with the new sticker which will confirm pass validity for 2011/2012. This new sticker will maintain the validity of your pass through June 2012.
