Students from four local high schools will be provided with a free annual transit pass under the new Student Transit Pass Pilot Program, to use on all Halifax Transit conventional buses, Access-A-Bus, and ferries during the 2021-2022 school year.
Participating schools and grades are:
- Prince Andrew High School – Grade 10-12
- Dartmouth High School – Grade 9-12
- École du Sommet – Grade 9-12
- École Mosaïque – Grade 9-12
The pilot program was approved by Halifax Regional Council on May 18, 2021. Pending an evaluation of this pilot, the goal of the program is to offer unlimited access to transit service for students from all high schools that can be accessed by public transit.
