YOUTH ABLE TO RIDE THE BUS FOR JUST $45/MONTH THIS SUMMER
Youth in Saskatchewan can buy a pass to ride with the Saskatchewan Transportation Company (STC) for only $45 per month during June, July and August.
Once again this summer, youth ages 12-25 will receive unlimited riding privileges on STC's network with the purchase of a youth pass, reaching 290 communities across Saskatchewan.
"This sale provides Saskatchewan youth with an affordable opportunity to visit friends and family in Saskatchewan," Minister responsible for STC Jim Reiter said.
STC's upgraded on-bus amenities are expected to help build on the considerable momentum from previous years. The addition and expansion of Wi-Fi on STC coaches is an attractive amenity for youth.
More than 3,000 Youth Passes were sold in 2011. Last year's sales surpassed the numbers from 2010 by 21 per cent.
"STC would like to see interest in this pass grow even higher," STC President and CEO Shawn Grice said. "We aim to reach new passengers so they can experience bus travel first-hand and encourage them to use STC Wi-Fi and enjoy the other amenities and improvements."
Youth passes will be available at any STC agent across the province on June 1.
