Kids ride transit free next week

School children can learn about the benefits of taking public transit for free during International Walk to School Week.

From Oct. 3 to 7, TransLink is offering free rides to students from kindergarten to Grade 12 (high school students need a valid Go Card) in support of iWalk.

“iWalk provides an opportunity for schools to educate kids about transportation options, both talking about them and experiencing them,” TransLink CEO Ian Jarvis said in a press release.

For field trips, the best time to travel is during off-peak hours, between 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., and teachers and students can use TransLink’s online trip planner to map their best routes. TransLink is also reminding regular customers to be patient and welcoming towards new transit users.
