As school resumes this week, students and families can ride for free on Thursday and Friday, August 11th and 12th, aboard Santa Maria Regional Transit.
Public transit offers a solution to get to and from school. Many of the SMRT bus routes have convenient pick-up and drop-off times for local schools.
To find the schedules, visit www.RideSMRT.org.
Questions may be directed to (805) 925-5624, or to the Department of Public Works Transit Division, (805) 925-0951 extension 2459.
Service adjustments have been made to routes that serve middle and high schools to support students and their families.
Regular fares for students with valid ID are $1.25 for a one-way ride or $3.00 for a day pass. A seven-day pass is $12, and a 31-day pass is $31. Passes can be purchased at the SMRT Transit Center, 400 Boone Street, and at five other locations including Ernest Righetti and Santa Maria high schools.
