Thank you for your interest in OCTA’s Youth Ride Free promotional pass. The program has been extended and will continue to allow youth ages 6 to 18 to ride OC Bus fixed-route buses for free.

With your help, we can make this transit opportunity available to as many students as possible.

The new Youth Ride Free pass is good for the entire school year. The pass will be valid until September 30, 2023.

OCTA is working with schools to share information and assist with pass and form distribution.

To request Youth Ride Free passes, please email OCTA with your school's preferred point of contact. A completed parental request form will be required for students to receive a free pass - see the program guide for more information.
