RTD and SUSD Continues to Support Free Transportation for High School Students

San Joaquin Regional Transit District (RTD) is pleased to announce a renewed partnership with Stockton Unified School District (SUSD) aimed at providing free local bus rides for high school students across Stockton.  Effective from July 1, 2024, to June 30, 2025, this initiative underscores our ongoing commitment to fostering student accessibility and supporting the educational environment.

This collaborative effort ensures that SUSD students in grades 9 through 12, including those in the Young Adult Program, can ride RTD’s existing fixed-route local services at no cost, facilitating easier and more affordable transportation to and from school.

"We are thrilled to continue our partnership with SUSD and to offer this vital service to our high school students," said RTD CEO Alex Clifford. "This renewed agreement not only supports our commitment to providing accessible transportation but also helps alleviate financial burdens for students and their families."

Key Features of the Partnership:

  • Free Rides: High School students in grades 9-12 from SUSD will have free access to all of RTD's fixed route local services within San Joaquin County, ensuring they can travel safely and efficiently.
  • Student Identification Cards: Each eligible student will receive a Student ID Card issued by SUSD, which will grant them access to RTD's bus services.
  • Commitment to Conduct: In accordance with RTD’s Code of Conduct, students are expected to maintain respectful behavior while using the transit services.  RTD reserves the right to revoke riding privileges if the Code of Conduct is not adhered to.

San Joaquin Regional Transit District (RTD) is the regional transit provider for San Joaquin County.  RTD’s mission is to provide a safe, reliable, and efficient transportation system for the region.  For more information visit sjRTD.com, follow RTD on Facebook, Instagram, and X, or call (209) 943-1111.
