Grade 9-12 students eligible for a free bus pass

August 20, 2015

The free bus passes were first offered to Grade 9 students in 2012-2013 and has since been expanded to include both Grade 9, 10, 11 and 12 students for the 2015-2016 school year.

The passes build on the already established Kingston Gets Active, a community-wide partnership of organizations including school boards and the City of Kingston throughout KFL&A. The ActivPass program offers Grade 9 students free access to recreational programs, such as swimming and skating, during the school year.

Who can get a Transit Pass:
The free Transit pass is available to Grade 9 to 12 students attending Holy Cross Catholic Secondary School or Regiopolis-Notre Dame Catholic High School.

How to get a Transit Pass:
Students in Grade 9 to 12 can obtain their free Kingston Transit pass at their school office or by presenting one of the following items at City Hall Pay It Centre, 216 Ontario St. or at the Information Desk at the Cataraqui Centre:

  • A birth certificate and a 2015-2016 Grade 9, 10, 11 or 12 student timetable, OR
  • A valid 2015-2016 student photo ID card

There is no cost for the initial bus card, however there is a $5 fee for a replacement card.
