The program, Ryde Free RT, provides fare-free access for TK through 12th-grade students to SacRT transportation services seven days a week and during all SacRT service hours. The program is set to run for one year from Oct. 1, 2019, through Sept. 30, 2020.

For students in grades 6-12, sticker passes will be available for pick-up starting the week of Oct. 8 and stickers will be placed on student ID cards. Exact pick-up locations will be shared by each school site in a separate communication. Parents/guardians of students in grades TK-5 can request a pass at their school site’s front office beginning the week of Oct. 8. 

Parents/guardians who would like to opt-out their student from this program can direct their student not to pick up a sticker, or they can remove the sticker from their student’s ID.

For more information, visit SacRT’s website at or contact your school’s front office. Transit schedules can be found at
