Kids Ride Free on WTA. And better yet-they love it!

Looking for an inexpensive outing with your little ones? Consider an adventure by bus. You may be surprised by how much your kids enjoy it. Kids are fascinated with watching people get on and get off the bus. Others love to feel and hear the acceleration and deceleration. They also enjoy sitting high above the other traffic and looking out oversized windows.

Great, easy destinations include playgrounds, parks and the libraries. Many are served by Go Lines, meaning routes along which the bus is coming every 15 minutes. You could also make a day trip to Lynden, Ferndale or Blaine, with a stop for lunch, hot cocoa or ice cream. To a child, this qualifies as a major journey!

It costs only $1 per ride for adults and kids eight and over. Kids under eight ride free. For information regarding strollers, and for help planning your trip, call 360-676-7433 or visit ridewta.com.
