 Rides Are Free August 11-12


As school resumes this week, students and families can ride for free on Thursday and Friday, August 11th and 12th, aboard Santa Maria Regional Transit (SMRT).


SMRT is giving the public the opportunity to try its services, at no cost.  Public transit offers a solution to get to and from school. Many of the SMRT  bus routes have convenient pick-up and drop-off times for  local schools. To find the schedules, visit


Service adjustments have been made to routes that serve middle and high schools to support students and their families.


Regular fares for students with valid ID are $1.25 for a one-way ride, or $3.00 for a Day Pass. A 7-Day Pass is $12, and a 31-Day Pass is $31. Passes can be purchased at the SMRT Transit Center, 400 Boone Street, and at five other locations including Ernest Righetti and Santa Maria high schools.
