Wheels offering 2-weeks of free rides for students

Special promotion starts Sept. 7, applies to all regular bus routes

Tri-Valley middle and high school students can ride free on all regularly-scheduled Wheels buses during a two-week promotional period starting Monday, Sept. 7.

The annual "Try Transit to School" promotion is now in its 15th year.

"We're proud to offer a great transportation alternative for students in our annual promotion," said Don Biddle, LAVTA board chairman and a Dublin City Councilman.

"We hope students and parents take advantage of this promotion and continue to ride Wheels throughout the year," he added. "It's a hassle-free way to move around the Tri-Valley."

To take advantage of the promotion, students simply board a Wheels Bus and ride. No ticket or pass is required. The promotion ends Friday, Sept. 18.

For schedule information, the Wheels bus book is available on the Wheels website at and is available at key locations in the Tri-Valley as well as on board the buses. Information is also available by calling the Wheels Customer Service line at (925) 455-7500.
