Ride On Kids Ride Free Program

The Ride On Kids Ride Free program entitles students to ride any Ride On bus and most Metrobus routes within Montgomery County without paying a fare from 2:00 PM until 8:00 PM Monday- Friday year-round. Effective January 1, 2015 students should show the bus operator a Youth Cruiser SmarTrip Card. Some schools, all Montgomery County libraries, TRiPS Stores and the Treasury Division office sell the cards for $2.

Students cannot ride free during the morning trip to school and if a student wants to take Ride On, should be encouraged to buy a Monthly Youth Cruiser pass for unlimited rides on Ride On for only $11 per month or $18 for the entire summer. The Monthly Cruiser can be purchased at the Treasury Office located at 255 Rockville Pike, Suite L-15, Rockville, MD, at select CVS and Giant stores in Montgomery County, and the Zodiac stores in Gaithersburg and Wheaton. The passes can also be purchased at the TRiPs stores located at 8413 Ramsey Avenue, Silver Spring and 17 Wisconsin Circle, Friendship Heights or at certain schools.

Students riding Route 70 Express buses will need to pay an upcharge of $2.05 in cash.
