Lost your job? Ride the bus for free

Friday, May 29, 2020 by Tai Moses

Starting Monday, June 1, fares will be reinstated for all Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority services. However, the transit agency is extending its fare-free program through June for those experiencing unemployment during the pandemic, as long as they apply for a special Workforce Aid Pass. According to Capital Metro, “The new Workforce Aid Pass program will enable customers looking for work to use transit without worrying about the costs associated with a CapMetro pass. Anyone who is currently unemployed and has received a letter or email to receive unemployment benefits from the Texas Workforce Commission is eligible.” Find out how to obtain a Workforce Aid Pass here. The pass will be valid for the month of June.
