Read-To-Ride Program runs May 25 - Aug. 9
Space Coast Area Transit’s Read-To-Ride program is offered the day after school lets out until the day before school begins. 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. 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,” stated Jim Liesenfelt, director of Space Coast Area Transit.
For many local youth, taking the bus is an alternative to being homebound over the summer. Bikes and surfboards are welcome on a space available basis. Read-To-Ride program participants can speak with a customer service representative to plan their trip by calling the RideLine at 321-633-1878. Interactive maps, schedules, and a Google Transit trip planner are also available online at RideSCAT.com desktop and mobile websites.
