Fort Transit is giving a free ride to local students this week.
The transit service is offering free bus fare for the first week back to class to all youth attending any of Fort Saskatchewan’s schools.
“And we'll be also trying to offer more transit frequency for the middle of September until mid-October," said the city’s transit supervisor Anthony Dionigi.
When the week is up, youth over 12 will pay $1.50 to ride the bus. Fort Transit does not charge fare for children 12 and under.
