Students will have a chance to travel anywhere they like in Hillsborough County for free on HART buses throughout the month.
Hillsborough Area Regional Transit says it will offer free service to middle and high school students with valid student identification during March as part of its Stay-cation program. Most students are scheduled to have spring break beginning March 10.
The service is available on HART Local, Limited Express, MetroRapid, In-Town Trolley and HARTFLex services.
HART’s Stay-cation program is now in its fifth year, and provided 56,000 free trips for students last year alone. The idea of the program is to allow kids to participate in sports, look for summer jobs, or do something relaxing during the annual school break.
It saves parents from having to be “taxi drivers,” saving gas and keeping additional cars off the road.
Students also are encouraged to use the smart phone app OneBusAway as well as Google Trip Planner to help figure out what buses are needed to get where they are going.
