Charlottesville, VA:  Area high school students will have another commuting option this holiday season. In an effort to promote public transportation as a viable and sustainable source of transportation among teens, Charlottesville Area Transit (CAT) will expand its Teen Ride Program to all high school aged students. The pilot program will begin December 18, in time for students' winter break.

Based upon the success of the Charlottesville High School (CHS) ride program, students in grades nine through twelve will have the ability to ride any CAT bus free of charge. This will include home schooled students, county school students, and private school students. To ride fare free, students will simply show their student ID or CAT issued photo ID.
