CHS students will ride for free

As gas prices and sea levels rise, Charlottesville is expanding free public transportation to high school students. Starting June 5, the city will let current CHS freshmen, sophomores and juniors ride Charlottesville Transit Service (CTS) buses free for a year as a part of its Demonstration Program.

CTS will also provide free bus rides to city and county kids ages 6 to 18 from June 5 through August 19. But before they can ride for free, children will need to (deep breath here) get a permission form from city schools, get parent signature on said form, get proof of residency and take all this mess to get a CTS photo ID at school.

Here’s the photo schedule:

  • Venable Elementary—Wednesday, April 23
  • Greenbrier Elementary—Thursday, April 24
  • Buford Middle—Monday, April 28
  • Walker Upper Elementary—Tuesday, April 29
  • Alternative Education Program—Wednesday, April 30
  • Ivy Creek—Wednesday, April 30
