City Council Approves Free Transit for Grade 7 and 8 Students

Grade 7 and 8 students will soon be able to ride Kingston Transit for free.

City Council voted to expand the free transit pass system for 13 and 14 year old's at Tuesday night's meeting.

At the beginning of 2017, the city started allowing kids 12 and under to ride Kingston Transit for free as part of a three year pilot project.

The program aims to make young people more comfortable taking public transit with the hope that they become lifelong passengers.
