 Ride On partners with libraries and schools to sell SmarTrip Cards; Kids Ride Free expanded

 

Montgomery County’s Ride On bus system has made it easier for residents to purchase the Youth Cruiser SmarTrip® card for customers 18 years of age and younger. The card can now be obtained at all 21 County libraries as well as 21 schools. Ride On is continuing to work with both public and private schools in the County to add additional purchase locations. Home-schooled students will also be eligible to purchase the card.The cost of the Youth Cruiser SmarTrip® card is $2.

In addition, the County Council approved extending the hours for Kids Ride Free an additional hour, from 2 to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday. The extended hours begin July 1. Previously, the program ended at 7 p.m. Kids Ride Free provides free rides on Ride On buses to youth ages 5 to 18. Ride On will be transitioning by the end of the year to using Youth Cruiser SmarTrip cards for identification instead of school identification cards.
