Transpo and SBCSC Partner to offer Free Travel for High School Students during the 2019 Fall Semester

08/12/19 at 01:46 PM

Transpo is excited to build on the success of the Summer Travel Program with a new pilot program for South Bend Community School Corporation High School Students. Students attending John Adams High School, Riley High School, Washington High School and Rise Up Academy will be able to show their SBCSC student ID and ride any Transpo fixed route for free August 15 through December 20, 2019.

Timetables and Route maps are available on our Routes & Fares page. Additionally, students can use Google Maps or Apple Maps to plan their routes. Routes servicing the high schools participating in the program include:

  • John Adams High School, Route 9 Northside / Mishawaka
  • Riley High School, Route 8 Miami / Scottsdale
  • Rise Up Academy, Routes 1 Madison / Mishawaka, 7 Notre Dame / UP Mall and Route 13 Corby / Town & Country
  • Washington High School, Route 10 Western Avenue

Clay High School is outside of the Transpo service area.

The program is designed to provide an additional transportation option for High School students and is not a replacement for the school bus service provided by SBCSC.

The program is the perfect opportunity for students to get to and from extracurricular activities and can be used as a backup option when a student misses their school bus. Following the first-semester pilot program, Transpo and SBCSC will review results and determine program options for the future.

Transpo continues to partner with School City of Mishawaka to provide School Tripper service to John Young Middle School and Mishawaka High School. The Mishawaka School Tripper routes are not eligible for free fares at this time.

For questions, trip planning, or to obtain a pass for high schoolers without a student ID, call the Transpo Info Line: 574-233-2131.
