Free Public Transportation in San Diego for Kids


SAN DIEGO — The program providing free public transit rides for young people, funded by the Association of San Diego Governments, is now officially underway.

Announced in early April, the Youth Opportunity Pass pilot program is a collaboration between SANDAG and Metropolitan Transit System, North County Transit District and San Diego County that aims to “help create a more equitable region by ensuring that safe, healthy and accessible are accessible to all. »

The program, which is open to anyone 18 and under, went into effect on Sunday May 1 and will run until June 2023.

“The Youth Opportunity Pass program is the first of its kind in the San Diego area,” officials said in a news release in April.

Along with the free PRONTO cards, the organizations say additional transport routes and timetables will be introduced later this year.
