Council Vice President Terrance Freeman supports JTA Launches My Ride 2 School Program, Offering Free Bus Rides to Students

January 03, 2022  
New pilot program for free JTA bus rides for Duval County students launches Tuesday.

Students attending school in Jacksonville will have more transportation options starting Tuesday, thanks to a new partnership between Jacksonville Transportation Authority, the city and Duval County Public Schools. 

Local leaders went into details regarding the My Ride 2 School pilot program — which will provide free bus trips to middle and high school public, charter and private school students in Jacksonville — at a news conference hosted Monday morning. 

"I quickly realized there was a great need," said City Council Vice President Terrance Freeman, who is credited for encouraging the program's concept. "When I think of the value of a program like this, I think of what the purpose is — these kids are getting a ride to school, to jobs."
