Hampton Roads Transit - Student Freedom Pass Sign-Up Event
Thursday, September 14, 2023
HRT’s Student Freedom Pass allows youth ages 13 to 17 to ride the bus, light rail, and ferry free of charge. The program was started to give teens an opportunity to get to school, jobs, and after school programs. Students only need to sign up once and the pass is good until two months after graduation or their 18th birthday, whichever is later.
Students must present proof of age (a DMV-issued ID, a military-issued ID, a birth certificate and student ID - must have both, or passport) and, after completing the application, will be issued a pass on the spot. Students will also learn how to use the pass and plan their trips.
