Metro Offers Free Passes To Foster Youth
By EGP News Report
(EGPNews) – A new transit pass program will allow young people transitioning out of foster care to ride Metro for free.
L.A. County Supervisor and new Metro Board Chair Michael Antonovich announced the new pilot program, Youth on the Move, which began its test run in June with 20 young people between 18 to 20 years old who are part of the Los Angeles County Youth Self-Sufficiency Program. They were issued Metro passes and EZ transit passes, valid on Metro bus and rail, as well as other carriers in the county. The program could ultimately benefit 2,000 youth in the county.Print This Post
