‘Kids Ride Free’ Program

KIDS RIDE FREE UPDATE:

Beginning October 1, 2018, students will no longer be able to use their DC One Cards to access free public transportation to and from school. They must obtain a Kids Ride Free SmarTrip Card. To receive your child’s SmarTrip card early, we strongly encourage you attend one of the pick-up events listed below. We will not be able to distribute the SmarTrip cards at school until after Labor Day. Learn more about the changes to the Kids Ride Free program . Until the end of September, students will be able to continue using their DC One Card for Metro Bus, Metro Rail, & Circulator travel to and from school.
