All K-12 students can now ride Capital Metro services for free, the agency announced in December. Students use the transit service to get to school, after-school activities, tutoring, libraries, jobs and more. Following a pilot program in June that offered free fares for K-12 students in Central Texas, the overwhelmingly positive feedback from children and parents led the agency’s board to make the pilot initiative permanent.
“Free fares for K-12 students is an investment in the young people of our region,” says Capital Metro President & CEO Randy Clarke. “Together, we will continue to remove obstacles to opportunity for young people in Texas and build the customer base of tomorrow.” For more information, visit capmetro.org.
