Since the summer of 2013, Topeka Metro has offered bus transportation at no cost on all fixed routes to youth ages 18 and under. Topeka Metro is launching this popular promotion beginning May 15 though August 15.
“Having a Kids Ride Free initiative is a huge plus for Topeka youth,” said Topeka Metro General Manager Susan Duffy. “This provides a safe, reliable way for kids in our community to get to where they need to go during the summer months while saving money. They can ride the bus to the pools, head to the mall, meet their friends or visit grandparents.”
Duffy said that learning to ride public transit is a life skill that can greatly benefit youth. In fiscal year 2017, Topeka Metro provided 42,728 rides to Topeka kids. “This summer we want kids to get out of the house and experience Topeka!”
Maps and time points for routes are posted on Topeka Metro’s website and in all of the Topeka Metro shelters. For questions or help with trip planning, call Topeka Metro Customer Service at 785-783-7000.
