As we welcome the end of the 2020-2021 school year, we wish to remind Kitimat parents and caregivers of the extension announced by the District of Kitimat regarding the Student Free Fares Pilot Program through to August 31, 2021.
In September 2020, the District of Kitimat sponsored the implementation of free fares for Kindergarten to Grade 12 students within the Kitimat Transit System as part of a one-year pilot project. The District of Kitimat recently announced the extension of the one-year pilot project to August 31, 2021 allowing all Kitimat students to continue to enjoy the “complimentary student fare” over the summer months as follows:
- Students 14+ are required to show their student ID with the K-6 U-Pass sticker when boarding the bus to ride for free.
- Students who do not currently possess a sticker are asked to contact their School Principal no later than June 30, 2021 to arrange an appointment to receive a sticker.
- Students, 14 and under, are not required to show a student ID.
Questions regarding the program can be directed to the District of Kitimat’s Director of Corporate Administration, Ethan Anderson at (250) 632-8900. For information on Kitimat Transit bus schedules and routes, please visit:
Please be advised that BC Transit continues to follow the guidance of the PHO and WorkSafeBC, and face coverings are currently mandatory on all buses and at bus stops.
Wishing you a happy, fun and safe summer with your families and friends!
