Free County Transit Bus Rides for High School Students with Student Body Card!!
Lincoln County Transit announces a new program to allow any Lincoln County high school student to free ride anywhere in Lincoln County – just show the transit driver your high school student body card! That’s your ticket to ride!!
The service includes all county high schools and charter schools serving grades 9-12. For students who are without a reliable source of transportation, this will provide greater mobility and security to attend after-school functions, travel to work, social events, shopping and more. It also provides a free ticket for all high school student who want to explore Lincoln county. (Sorry, no free round-trips to shopping malls in Corvallis or Salem.)
According to Transit Director Cynda Bruce “We are excited to be able to offer this service to all our students, grades 9-12, throughout the county. This will create many opportunities for them to attend after school-events or take on summer jobs!
Funds are provided by the State Transportation Improvement Fund. Again, any high school student can get a free ride by simply showing their student body card to the bus driver.
This new program for high schoolers comes out of a new state fund called “Keep Oregon Moving.” More information can be found on this website: https://www.oregon.gov/ODOT/RPTD/Pages/STIF.aspx
