Students Ride Free!
Thanks to St. Albert Transit, students up to grade 12 and between the ages of 13 and 18 who are attending school in St. Albert, can ride the bus for free starting March 1, 2019!
How the Program Works
The Students Ride Free program is a pilot program that will run for a full school year and then some, ending July 1, 2020. The transit rides are available for any student from a participating school, who is within the age category, and can be used for free local travel within St. Albert. The program is not available for travel to and from Edmonton.
Participating is easy! Although the ride is free, students are required to have a ticket when hopping on the bus. Free booklets of tickets are available at their schools’ administrative offices. For a list of participating schools, check out the Students Ride Free Program.
St. Albert Transit will be counting the free tickets that are dropped in the bus fare boxes, to gather data on the success of the pilot program. This information will be used in the future to learn more about youth transit ridership and how St. Albert Transit could assist school boards with their transit needs.
