RTA’s Kids Ride Free program is posting record ridership.

Tens of thousands of Greater Cleveland families are taking advantage of this great offer so far this summer, with ridership for the Kids Ride Free program now up 50% over last year.

Up to three children, age 12 and under, can ride any Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) bus or train free, when accompanied by a fare-paying adult. The program runs through Saturday, August 11.

“We’re halfway through the second year of this summer promotion, and so far, we’ve tallied nearly 40,000 rides. That’s up 50% from last year,” said RTA CEO and General Manager, Joe Calabrese.
