FREE FARE PROGRAM INTRODUCES LOWCOUNTRY YOUTH TO TRANSIT
CHARLESTON, S.C. (APRIL 9, 2019) – The Charleston Area Regional Transportation Authority (CARTA) has launched a new Free Student Fare pilot program that allows students in the system’s service area ages 6 and older to ride CARTA for free. The new program is available to both public and private school students and applies to all CARTA services.
The Free Student Fare pilot program is a win-win and accomplishes several important things. “First, it familiarizes a new generation with transit in the Lowcountry. Second, it reduces barriers to mobility for students who may otherwise have no transportation”.
