The City of Kingston Transit Student Bus Pass has grown over the last three years, from just being offered to grade 9 students, to now being offered to all highs school students in Kingston and Amherstview. High school students can travel on City buses for free. The program allows students greater independence and mobility. This partnership between the school board and the City of Kingston helps remove barriers for some students in getting to recreational programs, volunteer opportunities and part-time jobs, in addition to getting to and from school. The transit program also makes sure students are taken on a mini trip on a City bus so they can learn firsthand about public transportation. How to read schedules so they can plan their trips, where to find that information, and how the public transit system works.
