Free Bus Rides

Prince George's Students Will Get Free Bus Rides
Washington Post

By Lena H. Sun
Friday, July 27, 2007; Page B02

Metro will give free bus rides to school-age children on weekdays between 2 and 7 p.m. in Prince George's County starting Aug. 20, the first day of public school in the county. Under the program, approved yesterday by the Metro board, the county will reimburse the transit agency $300,000 for rides on 82 Metrobus routes. The program will run through June. Middle school- and high school-age students must show a current school photo identification card. The county is also providing free rides for school-age children on the county-run system, TheBus. The program is aimed at encouraging transit use and reducing the need for parents to drive children to after-school events.
