Rapid Ride enters sixth year of “Youth Ride Free” program

The City is offering a free ride orientation period beginning Tuesday, August 17 through Friday, August 27 for parents to become familiar with routes and schedules by boarding any of the RapidRide buses.

RAPID CITY, S.D. — Rapid Ride entering its sixth year of free transit service for the city’s youth.

New this year – parents can ride free during an orientation period, allowing them to become familiar with bus routes and scheduling.

From August 17-27, parents – when accompanied by their school-aged child – can ride transit for free.

“The service also provides peace of mind for parents knowing there is a reliable option for getting their child to school.  It’s also a great option when that school car isn’t working or we have cold, inclement weather with icy roads,” says RTS System Manager Megan Gould.

Rapid RideFamilies wanting to use the transit for the 2021-2022 school year must register thru the Youth Ride Free Program and provide their name, school, parent or guardian’s name, and an emergency contact phone number.
