VTA offers discounted summer youth pass

The Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority is offering a special, low fare pass for teens and kids during the summer months, starting Monday.

The Summer Youth Pass will allow unlimited rides all summer long on VTA light rail trains and buses for just $75 for people 18 and under, VTA officials said.

The price of the summer pass is $60 less than three monthly passes, according to VTA officials.

The passes can be used on all VTA buses and light rail trains throughout Santa Clara County, between June 1 and August 31, VTA officials said.

The passes are optimal for teens headed to summer jobs at local malls, Raging Waters, Paramount’s Great America and other places throughout the county.

Teens and kids can purchase the pass at vta.org/syp between today and July 15.
