Background

Students who use Metrorail, Metrobus, and DC Circulator to get to school and school-related activities will need to obtain a new Kids Ride Free SmarTrip card at a summer distribution event or when the next school year starts. Beginning next school year, students will no longer use their DC One Cards to access public transportation.

  • The new Kids Ride Free SmarTrip card will continue to provide students with free transportation on Metrobus, Metrorail, and DC Circulator to school and school-related activities.
  • Students will simply be required to tap their new Kids Ride Free SmarTrip cards on all bus and rail trips.
  • The new card will be separate from students’ DC One Card and will provide students with easier and immediate access to Metrobus, Metrorail, and DC Circulator.

To ensure students do not experience an interruption in their ability to use the Metro or DC Circulator, current Kids Ride Free activated DC One Cards can be tapped to ride through September 30, 2018. Beginning October 1, 2018, students will no longer be able to use their DC One Cards to access public transportation.

Additional Information
If students are unable to attend a summer distribution event, they can get their new SmartTrip card from their school’s DC One Card Administrator at the start of the 2018-2019 school year.

Questions about the Kids Ride Free program can be directed to your school’s DC One Card Administrator or go online to kidsridefree.dc.gov or call (202) 673-1740.
