Portland Sets Precedent with Free Bus Passes for High School Students

Being a high school student in Portland, Oregon sure does have its advantages. Regardless of whether or not he or she can afford it, each student will receive a free pass to ride city buses.

Each of these bus passes retails for approximately $26 a month and will assist students in commuting to and from school, work, and recreational activities. The program receives some funding from money that would traditionally be spent on yellow school buses.

All in all, this sure beats having to wait from a ride from mom or dad…
