Students Ride for Only 25¢ During Winter Break

QUARTER RIDES AVAILABLE DECEMBER 21, 2018 TO JANUARY 13, 2019

Who says a quarter doesn’t buy much? 

The Riverside Transit Agency (RTA) is once again rolling out a special 25-cent fare for students who ride the bus between December 21 and January 13. That means anyone in grades 1-12 with a valid school ID can ride for a quarter to the movies, the mall, a friend’s house, Disneyland — anywhere RTA buses goes, anytime they operate.

Plus, with comfortable seating, free Wi-Fi service and USB charging ports, there’s never been a better time to ride the bus. Show up in style, not in Mom’s minivan.

Parents, rest assured that we’ll get your kids where they need to go safely. With trained drivers and a clean environment, customer safety is our number-one priority.

Planning your trip is easy. Click here to view maps and schedules or contact the Customer Information Center at (951) 565-5002. We’re open until 10 p.m. every day. 

Getting to and from the bus stop may require a short walk, skateboard or bike ride. And yes, students can take their bike or skateboard on the bus. While a school ID is the preferred method of getting a 25-cent ride, bus drivers also accept RTA Youth ID cards, or California driver’s licenses or state IDs showing the rider is under 19 years old.
