Students Ride Free Program
St. Albert Transit is pleased to offer the Students Ride Free Program, which will run as a pilot project from March 1, 2019 to July 1, 2020.
It is important to note that there are two distinct services provided by St. Albert Transit:
- Local service involving routes for neighbourhoods within St. Albert.
- Commuter service involving routes that take riders into Edmonton.
To clarify how the Students Ride Free Program will work:
- All secondary school-aged youth (ages 13-18) can ride local transit routes for free until July 1, 2020. These students will be using special tickets provided by their school administration (see below for more information).
- All primary school-aged children (ages 12 and under) can ride local transit routes for free until July 1, 2020. They will not require a ticket of any kind.
As an added benefit, riders 12 years of age or younger will be able to ride commuter routes for free without a ticket, if they are accompanied by an adult who has paid the fare for the commuter trip. If a child requires travel to and from Edmonton unaccompanied, please contact St. Albert Transit Administration at 780-418-6060.
The goal of the project is to promote transit habits in our youth that will carry on to post-secondary and adult stages of their lives as well as provide St. Albert Transit with valuable data and information on how our services could be used to supplement and assist the school boards with their transportation needs.
Students aged 13 to 18 will require a ticket to ride locally on St. Albert Transit. Ticket books are available at participating schools, retail outlets, St. Albert City Hall & the St. Albert Transit office. Please see the detailed list below.
