Times-Tribune staff

Madison County Transit will once again offer its Summer Youth Pass, which allows Madison County students ages 18 and under free rides on all MCT public buses. 

The MCT Summer Youth Pass is valid from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Transit officials in a news release said the pass is geared to help young people without transportation access to summer jobs or other resources. 

“For 15 years, the MCT Summer Youth Pass has provided Madison County students with a free and safe way to access summer jobs, classes, community resources, shopping areas, pools, parks, and more.” said MCT Managing Director SJ Morrison. “I want to thank the MCT Board of Trustees for their continued support of this program for our young people.”

MCT’s Summer Youth Pass program was created in 2008 to provide affordable transportation access for Madison County youth and their families, and accounts for more than 550,000 boardings on MCT buses, according to the release. 

This year, MCT has distributed 9,000 Summer Youth Passes to Madison County junior high/middle schools, high schools, and community organizations. Students or parents can obtain a free MCT Summer Youth Pass by visiting their school office, by contacting MCT at, or by calling 618-797-4600.
