Metro Transit offers cheap fares for educational outings
Metro Transit is now offering an opportunity for students aged 5 to 17 and educators to travel on field trips at discounted fares. Schools, community centers, summer programs, or any other educational organization must submit a request form to Metro Transit at least three weeks in advance of the field trip, after which a voucher will be issued. The special fare is 75 cents round trip per student and chaperone, provided that one adult is present for every six students, and that travel occurs during off-peak hours (9 a.m.-3 p.m.; all day Saturday, Sunday, and holidays). The regular fare for students is 75 cents one way. For more information, or to request a fare discount, call Patricia Banks at 684-1581.
