More and more classes are taking their field trips using the bus system. When field trips are made by elementary, junior high or high schools to educational points of interest including, but not limited to, libraries, museums and historical landmarks, teachers may request a "Transit in Education" Boarding Pass for the students and adults in the group. The boarding pass will allow the class to ride to to the destination FREE (one-way) a savings of 1/2 off the full round trip fare. The class rides on a regularly scheduled bus route(s) to their destination. To learn more, please call our Customer Service staff or fill out our contact form. We will help you plan your trip, and notify the bus drivers so they are expecting your group. Large Groups over 30 persons may need to ride at different times due to the capacity of the buses.
