Title

Youth Ride Free Promotional Pass Expanded to Include 18 and Under

Overview

The Orange County Transportation Authority plans to launch a promotional free pass for youth ages 13 and under in September 2021, funded by Low Carbon Transit Operation Program grant funds. Based on feedback from the Board of Directors, staff is recommending expanding the eligible age of the pass to include ages 18 and under. The revised promotional “Youth Ride Free” pass would be available to all youth riders (six to 18 years old), from September 2021 to February 2022.

 

Recommendation(s)

A.                     Expand the eligible age of the current “13 and Under Ride Free” youth fare promotion from six to 13 years old to include ages 14 to 18 years old.

 

B.                     Authorize staff to make all necessary amendments, as well as execute any necessary agreements to facilitate the above recommendation.
