The Places You'll Go with Summer Wheels!
Discounted Rides for Youth All Summer
May 31, 2013
In the famous words of Dr. Seuss, "Today is your day! You're off to Great Places!" That's exactly how local youth will feel on Saturday, June 1, when their StarMetro Summer Wheels Pass becomes valid. This special pass, which went on sale last week, gives youth 17 years or younger and those attending high school the opportunity to ride StarMetro all summer long at a dramatically reduced rate.
"StarMetro's Summer Wheels Pass gives independence to kids and freedom to parents by providing youth a means of unlimited transportation during the summer months," said Mayor John Marks.
The Summer Wheels Pass is valid for the months of June, July and August and only costs $33, less than a regular, one-month pass. If purchased now, this could save youth riders more than $80 over the life of the pass.
The pass may be purchased up until August 2 at C.K. Steel Plaza or StarMetro's administrative offices, located at 555 Appleyard Drive. The cost will remain the same no matter the purchase date.
