Topeka Metro announced the "Kids Ride Free" program for the summer.
Kids through age 18 can ride free on fixed route bus service between May 15th and August 15th.
Topeka Metro is partnering with the Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library, the Kansas
Children's Discovery Center, Brown vs. Board of Education, and the Topeka Zoo to highlight summer activities that can be accessed by taking the Metro.
"This is a wonderful opportunity to connect kids to Topeka," said Metro General Manager, Susan Duffy. "There are lots of great places to go and do in Topeka. This summer we want kids to get out of the house and experience Topeka."
Routes and schedules can be found at www.topekametro.org. Or call Topeka Metro Customer
