SACRAMENTO, Calif. — In hopes of boosting sagging ridership among teens, The Sacramento Bee reports that Regional Transit’s (RT) board votes to cut the price of student passes from $55 per month to $20 beginning Jan. 1.
The new fares, if approved, are scheduled to last six months, until the end of the school year. The RT board will review student ridership numbers in three months, however, to decide whether to continue the lower fares next year.
The agency also will explore offering reduced-rate summertime passes to students as well, according to the report. For the full story, click here.
