Students 18 and Under Can Ride Free All Summer
BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIDA – Space Coast Area Transit’s Read-To-Ride program is offered the day after school lets out until the day before school begins, May 31 through August 11.
Students under the age of 18 who show their free-of-charge Brevard County Library Card will receive free bus fare all summer long.
“Read-To-Ride emphasizes the importance of using Brevard County Libraries as a resource to enhance reading skills during the summer months,” said Scott Nelson, Director of Space Coast Area Transit.
“It also teaches students how to use the transit system by allowing them to ride the bus for free to the library, mall, beach, and numerous other locations throughout the summer.”
For many local youths, taking the bus is an alternative to being homebound over the summer.
Bikes and surfboards are welcome on a space available basis.
