Free summer bus passes for kids
Summer is just around the corner and Metro Bus is helping kids get to their activities FREE with the U-Go Free Summer Youth Program. The U-Go Free Program allows kids ages 17 and younger to have free, unlimited rides on all Metro Bus Fixed Routes and ConneX in Sartell from June 1-August 31. The program does not require registration or a pass.
“Kids can get to their summer activities for free using Metro Bus and we can teach them how to get to their specific destinations,” said Ryan Daniel, Metro Bus CEO, referring to the Metro Bus Travel Training program which is available for free to individuals of all ages, including kids. Daniel continues, “The U-Go Free Program is a unique opportunity for youth to learn the Metro Bus Fixed Route system, gain independence by being able to travel safely on their own or with friends, and take the pressure off their parents to bring them to activities. It is a true win-win for our community!”
Free, how-to-ride Travel Training is not limited to U-Go Free Program participants but is a great opportunity for kids to learn how to maximize their summer adventures! Travel Training is available year-round and is customized to meet the needs of the individual or a group, including classroom, simulated street environment and on-the-road training options. For more information or to schedule training, call the Mobility Training Center, 320.529.4497. How-to-Ride videos are also available on the Metro Bus website, ridemetrobus.com/home/how-to-ride-videos.
