Sun Metro to Provide Youth with Free Summer Ride Program

For a third consecutive year, Sun Metro will partner with non-profit organizations to provide youth with free transportation during the summer months.

“Parents can avoid the hassle of having to drive the kids to their summer program. Sun Metro provides transit for the youth of our community all while helping them stay active and busy this summer,” said Sun Metro Director Jay Banasiak.

The Kids on the Go! Summer Youth Transportation program will offer free bus rides to qualifying youths from June 1, 2017 through August 31, 2017 through nonprofit organizations that provide summer programs for local children.

The United Way of El Paso is serving as the liaison between Sun Metro and agencies participating in this initiative. Sun Metro will provide information to interested children and offer transportation to attend their favorite summer program. Select agencies are currently enrolling youth in the program. For a complete list of participating agencies visit’s Programs and Annual Events section.

Youth between the ages of 6 to 18 years who are enrolled in summer programs from non-profit agencies participating in this initiative are eligible for the free passes. Children under the age of 12 will receive a distinguished pass to allow for a companion, over the age 12, to ride with the child free of charge.

Children under the age of 5 always ride for free.

Sun Metro Reminds Veterans of Discounted, Free Bus Rides

Sun Metro reminds the public that it provides a free 90-day bus pass and a one month discounted rate through nonprofit agencies to qualified veterans.

Veterans requiring transit services will have access to fixed-route service free up to 90 consecutive days.

“Sun Metro is proud to honor veterans who have faithfully served our country,” said Sun Metro Director Jay Banasiak. “We recognize the need for our veterans to have transportation and it is our honor to help our veterans where we can.”

To participate in the 90-day pass program or to obtain a 30-day discounted rate pass, interested veterans can visit their service agency for an application or call Sun Metro for a list of current participating agencies. Riders will be asked to show their Sun Metro issued Veteran ID and display their pass when boarding any Sun Metro fixed route bus.

These programs will increase access to our high quality bus system throughout the service areas and assist veterans who seek new employment opportunities or have any other transit needs. This is a small way the City of El Paso thanks veterans for their dedication to our country.

For more information on the program, or currently participating agencies, please contact (915) 212-3338 or (915) 212-3340.
