Taylor Hamby used her Student Summer Bus Pass to get around last summer.

“During the summer, I babysat a 3 year old boy. We used the T to go around town and do fun things,” she said. If it wasn’t for the bus, we would not have been able to go anywhere. I know for sure that the bus was the favorite part of my summer!”

This is the fifth year of the Student Summer Bus Pass program in Lawrence. Each year, the program expands, as more and more students discover how the bus can help them with their transportation needs.
