Kids Ride Free is getting smarter! Beginning October 1, 2018, students will no longer be able to use their DC One
Cards to access public transportation. Students who use Metrorail, Metrobus, or the DC Circulator to get to and
from school and school-related activities will need to obtain a new Kids Ride Free SmarTrip card.
GET YOUR CARD EARLY
Over the coming weeks, card distribution events are being held in every ward to allow students who currently use bus
and rail to get to school and school-related activities an opportunity to register and obtain their new Kids Ride Free
SmarTrip card before the new school year begins. In order to receive a new Kids Ride Free SmarTrip card, students
will need to be present and bring their current DC One Card or a government-issued ID to one of these events.
