Twelve-thousand Muni passes are up for grabs for San Francisco youth.
Earlier month, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency voted to provide 12,000 low-income youth with free rides to and from school via Muni buses for the remainder of the school year.
To take advantage of the free youth passes — a $20 value — the San Francisco Unified School District is accepting applications for qualified students.
In order to qualify, children must be enrolled in a district school, under the age of 18. Priority will be given to middle and high school students who qualify for free lunch.
Applications are due March 18 to be considered for the free pass.
Starting next school year, though, students will qualify for a discounted pass, known as the Youth LifeLine Pass.
Applications can be found here and should be mailed to or dropped off at 135 Van Ness, Room 112, San Francisco, Calif., 94102, by Friday.
