The Point:  Students can spread their wings and ride at a great rate.

Say goodbye to mom’s minivan and hello to a better way around this summer. Riverside Transit Agency quarter rides are back by popular demand! From June 1 through September 2, students in grades 1-12 simply flash their school IDs to ride the bus for just 25 cents.

For just a quarter, students can catch a ride to popular destinations like Disneyland, the beach, the mall, movies. Whether it’s a quick trip across town, or a lift to more distant destination, kids can go anywhere RTA buses go, anytime they operate. And yes, it’s okay to take a bike or skateboard on the bus.

Parents, rest assured that RTA will get your kids where they need to go safely. With trained drivers and a clean environment, customer safety is RTA’s number-one priority. With comfortable seating, free Wi-Fi service and USB charging ports, there’s never been a better time to ride the bus.
