STA Zero-Fare Rider’s License Offers Free, Unlimited Bus Rides for Youth

Posted on June 29, 2023 at 4:00 am

Young people ages 6–18 can ride Spokane Transit buses for free with an STA Rider’s License, available now at the library.

The Rider’s License is a bus pass that allows kids to ride STA buses for free year-round until they turn 19 years old. These passes are for ages 6 through 18 (kids under age 6 already ride free).

The Rider’s License is free—just stop by the library with an ID (your library card counts!) and ask for the STA Rider’s License at the service desk. The passes are also available while onboard LINC, our mobile library.

Here are the libraries where you can pick up an STA Rider’s License:

STA Rider’s Licenses can also be requested through STA Youth & Student Passes web page.
