Kids get around town with student summer bus pass

April 16, 2015

Parents: What are your kids going to be doing this summer? More importantly, how will they get there? Do you need help getting your kids to the pools, library, recreation centers, and shopping? Wherever kids need to go in Lawrence, the T can get them there!

For only $10, the student summer bus pass is good for unlimited rides in June, July and August. The pass is for students in grades K-12. This year, there are even more locations to purchase the pass:

Starting May 1
City Hall
Community Building
East Lawrence Rec Center
Holcom Rec Center
Rock Chalk Park

Starting May 18
Indoor Aquatic Center

Starting May 23
Outdoor Aquatic Center

Trip planning assistance is available online or over the phone. Bus drivers are also there to help whenever a passenger needs assistance. In addition, kids and parents can send a text message to find when the next bus will arrive at a particular bus stop. They can also download the new app “MV Transit Where’s my Bus?” available on iTunes and Google Play.

“Learning to ride the bus and navigate the system can be extremely beneficial for kids,” said Robert Nugent, transit administrator. “Their parents also appreciate it because they know their children are getting to their destination safely.”
