Summer Youth Ride Free

Youth Ride Free is a Rideshare program that allows K-12 students to take the bus for free during summer months. No pass is required. Students simply present their student ID to the driver (when they’ve been issued one – for younger students this may not apply).

#ExploreSummer Contest

Anyone under 18 taking transit to places across SLO County will be entered to win a 12-month regional bus pass for documenting their travel on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook with a photo tagging us and the hashtag #exploresummer. Summer is a journey – show us yours!


  1. Please refrain from posting photos in real time. Remember, only one per day. Enjoy your day, take lots of pics and only share the best after your trip is complete!
  2. Please avoid the selfie – we want to see the landscape!
  3. Must be at least 13 years of age (per the required age restrictions on social media sites) or have a parent post from their account.

Don’t miss your chance to ride free all year. Contest ends September 1st, 2015. Limit 1 post per day toward entry. Enter as many days between June 1st and August 31st as you like. Good luck!
