Explore with StarMetro's Summer Wheels Pass
May 27, 2014
Discounted Fare Card Offers Youth Specials and Unlimited Rides All Summer Long - In less than a week, school will be out for summer and many children will have a lot more free time on their hands. For busy parents, getting their children to pools, playgrounds and parks during the break can be hectic, but StarMetro has the solution – the Summer Wheels Pass! On sale now, the Summer Wheels pass offers youth under the age of 17 the opportunity to ride StarMetro all summer long at a dramatically reduced rate.
"The Summer Wheels pass is a great way for students to remain active over the summer, exploring all that Tallahassee has to offer," Ivan Maldonado, director of StarMetro, said.
Valid June through August, the Summer Wheels pass costs $33 – less than a one-month, unlimited fare card. Passes may be purchased until August 4 at C.K. Steele Plaza, 111 W. Tennessee St., or at StarMetro's administrative office, located at 555 Appleyard Dr. No matter the purchase date, the pass will cost the same; therefore, early purchasing is recommended. If purchased now, youth riders could save more than $80 over the life of the pass.
Another bonus to purchasing the Summer Wheels pass is the perks! This year, StarMetro has partnered with several businesses to provide special incentives to youth. Throughout the summer, partners will be offering special discounts and giveaways. These partners include:
- Challenger Learning Center, 200 S. Duval St.
- Chillax Teen Center, 2189 Capital Circle NE
- Mission San Luis, 2100 W. Tennessee St.
- National High Field Magnetic Laboratory (Mag Lab), 1800 E. Paul Dirac Dr.
- Premier Health and Fitness, 3521 Maclay Blvd.
