Student's Guide to Public Transportation

Public Transportation is a fast, safe and economical means for students to be independent and mobile. For more information on route maps and schedules, check out our Routes page.

Student fare is $.75 each way with a student ID. Transfers are $.25 and must be requested when boarding.

Young people who are not of driving age or do not have a car, primarily rely on their parents as their main source of transportation. Single parent households can pose even greater challenges with meeting their children's needs to get to after school activities, jobs and recreation. Public transportation is a simple and economic solution.

Many public schools in Monroe County are situated on our public fixed routes system.

It Makes Sense to Use Public Transportation

According to AAA, the average monthly cost to drive a car is $600.00, while a student can enjoy access to any public fixed route for just $.75 with a valid student ID.

For students who come to the Poconos to attend college and don't bring a car, public transportation is an essential means to get around. Whether you need to shop, get a job or you just want to enjoy a recreational activity, public transportation is fast and easy. For many students, bikes make getting around easier as well as providing an enjoyable means of recreation and exercise. All public fixed route buses have racks to transport bikes.

Check out our Student's Guide to Public Transportation for a step by step route guide of things to do and places to see in the Poconos.

All public fixed route buses are accessible under ADA guidelines. Some students with special needs may be eligible for additional subsidized programs.
