During the month of November, active duty military personnel and veterans can ride the Topeka Metro fixed route service for free by showing the bus operator their veteran ID when boarding the bus. Valid identification includes:
- Military ID
- Driver’s License with “VETERAN” or “MILITARY” stamp on it
- Form DD-214
- Veteran’s Identification Card (VIC)
Service is available to all branches of the U.S. Military: Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, and Navy. All of Topeka Metro fixed route buses are A.D.A. accessible.
“At Topeka Metro, we have high regard for our veterans and we thank them for their service,” said Susan Duffy, Topeka Metro General Manager. “For that reason, we want to honor them all month, not just one day, and hope they hop on board and enjoy the ride.”
