Youth Cruiser Summer Passes Go On Sale May 16

For Immediate Release: Tuesday, May 16, 2017


Ride On makes it easy for those under 18 to travel around the County in the summer by offering the Youth Summer Pass, which is loaded onto a Youth Cruiser SmarTrip Card. The Pass allows kids to take unlimited Ride On trips between June 1 and August 31 for a flat fee of $18.

Starting May 16, purchase the Youth Summer at the TRiPS Commuter Stores in Silver Spring,  8404 Colesville Road and Friendship Heights, 17 Wisconsin Circle; the Montgomery County Treasury Office, 255 Rockville Pike, Suite L-15, Rockville; online at www.SmarTrip.com, or at select CVS and Giant locations. See the complete list of locations.

Kids Ride Free hours continue during the summer. The summer pass can be used for all other rides when regular fares apply.

Kids who don’t have the Youth Cruiser SmarTrip Card can buy one for $2 at any County library with proof of age and residency. The card, which is designed for County residents who are in kindergarten through 12th grade, allows students to participate in Kids Ride Free and take advantage of discounted youth monthly and summer passes.
