RydeFreeRT: Free Transit for Youth Grades TK – 12

All Day – Every Day

With RydeFreeRT, youth can ride the entire SacRT transit network, including SacRT buses, light rail, and SmaRT Ride on-demand microtransit service for FREE during regular service hours.

New cards will be distributed by schools prior to the end of the current school year. The new card is valid from June 1, 2022 through June 30, 2023 for grades TK through 12th. Youth who are experiencing homelessness or taking part in foster programs are also allowed to participate in the program, regardless of current residence or school address.

Students and youth that do not have a RydeFreeRT card, can visit SacRT’s Customer Service and Sales Center located at 1225 R Street (adjacent to the 13th Street Light Rail Station) or Sacramento County Public Libraries.

Note: The RydeFreeRT program does not apply to those over 18 years old that are pursuing their GED.
