9/13/2018, 6 a.m.
GRTC plans to activate the free ride program for Richmond high school students on Monday, Oct. 1, City Councilwoman Ellen F. Robertson said Monday night.
The bus company began distributing applications to students last week and is preparing to issue passes to students who return a permission slip signed by a parent or guardian.
The pass will allow students, who have been riding for half price in recent weeks, to ride free on any GRTC bus.
Mayor Levar M. Stoney proposed the program, with City Council approving funding for it through 2020. — JEREMY M. LAZARUS
