San Joaquin Regional Transit District (RTD) in partnership with Stockton Unified School District (SUSD) will provide complimentary transit for all 7th – 12th grade SUSD students beginning Wednesday, June 1 just in time for summer school. Students can ride RTD buses at no cost by simply showing their valid student ID to the bus operator and hop aboard. Beyond trips to school, students can travel to after-school programs, community centers, libraries, summer jobs, and more. Complementary trips are valid within the Stockton Metropolitan area all year round and does not include RTD Van Go! and Commuter services. “As an agency, RTD is focused on providing equitable access to transportation for all,” said RTD CEO Alex Clifford. “Transportation should not be a barrier to education. As gas prices continue to soar, this is a timely partnership. Not only does this program helps students gain access to transportation, but it will also help our continued efforts in reducing greenhouse gases and carbon footprint from single occupancy vehicles.” Parents and students can learn more at www.sjRTD.com/SUSD .
