Program Encourages Youth to "Ride the Bus on Us" this Summer
Jun 27, 2016
The City of Greater Sudbury’s "Ride the Bus on Us" initiative will continue this summer for a eighth consecutive year. This popular program is designed to encourage young people to take part in community programs and to familiarize themselves with the public transit system.
Local youth, ages 12 to 24, are invited to present their library card or similar identification at any branch of the Greater Sudbury Public Library to request a free five-ride card for Greater Sudbury Transit. Passes will be distributed on a first come, first served basis starting July 4 and again on August 2. Five-ride passes will also be distributed through local social service agencies.
"’Ride the Bus on Us’ has proven to be a very popular program," said Mayor Brian Bigger. "I hope young people across Greater Sudbury take this opportunity to enjoy the many terrific facilities, activities and sporting events organized by the city this summer."
Approximately 2,000 complementary five-ride bus passes are available for distribution. For more information please dial 3-1-1 or visit www.sudburylibraries.ca for locations.
