The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority Board of Trustees has once again approved a program that allows children to ride free on buses and trains during the summer months.

Between June 2 and Aug. 10, when most kids are on summer vacation, anyone 12 or younger can travel for free along with a paying adult who is at least 18. Only three kids per adult are allowed

The RTA reports the program has given free rides to 135,000 children over the past two summers it's been implemented. The program grew by more than 50 percent in ridership last year.



The savings allows families to travel cheaply by train for Indians games or a day out any Cleveland museums without having to find parking. Parents with limited resources can also more affordably run errands via RTA with children in tow.
