On Wednesday, July 7th Rex was at the bus stop in front of El Dorado Middle School hanging out with the Concord High summer school students waiting to catch the route 15. He gave out ten free Summer Youth Passes. I think he made some new friends too.
Rex was spotted at College Park High School on Friday on route 18, with a brief stop at the bus stop on Contra Costa Blvd. Hey Rex, how was summer school? Ten free Summer Youth passes were given out. Where will he pop up next?
Rex was spotted on Route 20 at Sunvalley Mall on Friday and again at Concord BART on Route 10. Five Summer Youth Passes were given out free! Where will he be next?
County Connection staff will be boarding random bus lines with mascot, Mr. Safe T. Rex, to promote their “Ride, Rex, Ride” program. The first person to spot Rex with his travel companion wins a Summer Youth Pass. Updates on Rex’s travels will be posted here and on County Connection’s (Central Contra Costa Transit Authority) Facebook page. The Summer Youth 20-Ride Pass continues to sell for $15, keeping fares down to as little as 75 cents a ride and $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. Buses stop at BART, 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. SY 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.
