Free youth transit

Inside the bus on a rainy morning.

Many kids do not realize that they can get rides around town for free. More importantly, to and from school. All you have to do to find a bus stop is find a green sign with a bus on it, and some stops have benches too.

The public bus system of Ventura County is free to all youth. All you have to do is show the bus driver your school ID card, or a picture of it and you are able to ride. “I take the bus on the weekend to hang out with my friends when no one can give me a ride and it is always a good option,” said junior Emanuel Chavez.

The easiest way to figure out what bus to take is to search the location you are trying to get to on google and click on the directions, then for the transportation option click on transit. It will tell you where the bus stop is, which bus stop you have to get off at, and at what times it will come. To let the driver know that you want to get off at the next stop, you have to pull on the yellow cord located above the windows. Make sure to pull the cord right after you pass the last stop before you want to get off to give the driver enough time to stop. A bus comes to the stop about every 30 minutes. It is important to check the time the bus is coming because they usually all have the same daily schedule but sometimes the times will change randomly, you can check on the directions on google.

The route 10 buses can give you connections to the LA METRO in the city of Chatsworth. You can get the bus Monday to Saturday from 5:30 a.m to 8 p.m. If you bring along someone who is not a minor they only have to pay $1.50 for a one time ride. “My parents start work early in the morning so the bus is a good way to get to school for free, and not too early or late,” said Junior Emma Wall. Public transit is a great way to have a ride almost anywhere.
