K-12 Summer Travel Program Goes Regional
The Interurban Trolley is excited to announce that it will be joining with South Bend Transpo to create a free regional Summer Travel Program for all K-12 students.
The Summer Travel Program will provide free transportation to students in grades K-12 aboard all Interurban Trolley and Transpo fixed-route buses from June 1, 2019 through August 31, 2019. To receive a free ride, students will need to either show their valid student ID card or Summer Travel Pass each time they get on the trolley. For students who are homeschooled or those who attend a school that does not issue student ID cards, please contact the MACOG office at 574-674-8894 to obtain a pass.
“The Interurban Trolley is proud to join Transpo and make their successful Summer Travel Program a regional initiative,” said James Turnwald, Executive Director at the Michiana Area Council of Governments. “The Summer Travel Pass will increase access to employment, educational, and recreational opportunities throughout the region, and introduce K-12 youth to public transportation.”
The free fares will be available to K-12 students (18 and under) on all five Interurban Trolley fixed routes serving the cities of Elkhart and Goshen, on all Transpo routes serving the cities of South Bend and Mishawaka, as well as on the Yellow Line providing service between Mishawaka and Elkhart; jointly operated by the Interurban Trolley and Transpo.
