Youth Ride Free Pass

Thank you for your interest in OCTA’s Youth Ride Free promotional pass. The program has been extended and will continue to allow youth ages 6 to 18 to ride OC Bus fixed-route buses for free.

With your help, we can make this transit opportunity available to as many students as possible.

The pass issued in March will be good through September 2022, after which time a new pass will be provided.
