Free Bus Rides
Here is some good news for San Bernardino County students in elementary, middle and high school across the county, and especially for teens without cars:
K-12 students can ride free every day on every bus system in San Bernardino County.
The K-12 Student Free Fare Program is sponsored by the San Bernardino County Transportation Authority and is a one-year pilot project paid for primarily with Low Carbon Transit Operations funding, which seeks to reduce carbon emissions by increasing transit use.
This program is one way transportation agencies have stepped up efforts to get people out of individual cars and into public transportation. In this case, it’s helping students and families. This program gives students a little financial break, too.
Students can use the buses to go to school or anywhere else. The free-fare program is being implemented separately by each system. Riders should contact their local bus system for more information and for schedule details.
