NPEF_MTAMayor Karl Dean today announced that high school students in Metro Schools can ride MTA buses without paying a fare as part of a new student riders’ program called StrIDe. Public school students enrolled in grades 9 through 12 are eligible for the program, which runs year round including the summer months.

“This program gives our students the freedom to access more of the educational opportunities that we have worked so hard to provide for them,” Mayor Dean said. “With a bus pass, students can connect to meaningful opportunities that will enhance their educational lives, including student internships with local businesses, dual enrollment at our community colleges and extracurricular activities.”
