Concord, Calif. – This year County Connection’s Summer Youth Pass has added savings. Youths aged 6-18 can save money on bus fares, save $5 on admission to Waterworld*, or parents can buy one SY Pass for their kids and get one free.**
The Summer Youth 20-Ride Pass sells for $15, keeping fares down to as little as 65 cents a ride and is $25 less than cash fares. Passes can be used for multiple individual trips or for single use with a large group. They are good on all County Connection fixed-route buses, including trips to Waterworld, YMCAs, Amtrak, malls, and theaters. The pass is valid until September 30th so parents can have a break on transportation costs when kids return to school in the fall.
Students who learn how to use public transportation at an early age are more likely to use transit as a commute alternative when they reach adulthood, learning responsible independence, as well as helping the environment.
“This is an easy way for parents to save money. Kids can do their part to Go Green and have fun at the same time,” said Mary Burdick, Manager of Marketing and Public Relations. “After all, more friends can ride together on the bus.”
The summer youth passes can be purchased through the mail, at most of the agency’s sales outlets throughout the service area, or online. For more information about this program, call the customer service center at 676-7500 or visit www.cccta.org.
