Washington (DC) officials announced changes to the School Transit Subsidy Program that will make it easier for students to use the DC One Card on Metrorail and Metrobus services. Students in grades K-12 will be able to enroll for farecards online, recover lost passes, and renew their passes at any Metrorail station. “These changes will benefit students and their parents,” said Mayor Vincent Gray in a statement. “They are designed to make the program easier to use and to reduce the amount of leg work and time it takes to get a transit pass.” The DC One Card is a single identification card that gives students access to government programs, facilities, recreation centers and libraries. Students at the School without Walls tested the card’s transit features this spring. Link to full story in The Washington Post.
