Free Student Fare Pilot Program
CARTA has launched a new Free Student Fare pilot program that allows students in the system’s service area ages 6 and older to ride CARTA for free. (Kids 5 and under already rode at no-cost.) The new program is available to both public and private school students and applies to all CARTA services.
The program is currently slated to run through December 2019 on a pilot basis and will be monitored for possible extension. Students will not be required to show ID in order to board at this time.
CARTA buses can be tracked in real time by downloading the Transit App. Questions regarding the program should be directed to CARTA Marketing and Communications Manager, Michelle Emerson at email@example.com or 843-529-0400.
