Taking transit is free for people 18 and under thanks to Move Ahead Washington, a transportation funding package for the entire state. This means free rides to get to school, meet up with friends, get to work, and go shopping… where will WTA take you?
How it works:
Youth can ride all buses for free, including the paratransit and Lynden Hop. No pass is required
. Just let your driver know you're 18 or younger when you step on board. If you are riding the 80x to Skagit, a free youth pass is required.
How to ride:
Taking the bus for the first time? It's no problem! Your bus driver is here to make sure your trip runs smoothly. If you have any questions about your ride, you can always ask the driver. Travel Training
is also available for one-on-one assistance.
To find which bus to take, download WTA’s new BusTracker app or use the Trip Planner at ridewta.com
