Wheels bus rides are free for middle and high school students in the Tri-Valley from Sept. 9-22, including weekends, on all regularly scheduled routes. Students can simply board any Wheels bus and enjoy the ride.
The Try Transit to School program is in its 13th year to encourage students to try public transportation, a simple, eco-friendly way to get to and from school and around town.
"We are excited to offer this program to middle school and high school students in the Tri-Valley," said Pleasanton Mayor Jerry Thorne, Chairman of the Livermore Amador Valley Transit Authority (LAVTA) Board of Directors.
"Our hope for this program is that it encourages our younger population to utilize public transportation and take advantage of the benefits of taking mass transportation."
New schedules and route maps will be available online, effective Aug. 24. In addition, new bus books will be available at all Tri-Valley libraries, senior centers, the Livermore Transit Center and all ticket sales outlets.
