Back to School on SLO Transit

Post Date:08/14/2019 12:00 PM

Effective Monday, August 19, SLO Transit will resume the Laguna Tripper (LT) and San Luis Drive Tripper (SLT) bus service for the 2019-20 academic year. 

The Laguna Tripper (LT) is a route option to/from Laguna Middle School for 7th and 8th graders. The LT makes a morning and an afternoon trip that coincides with Laguna Middle bell times. Routes 2A, 2B, 3A, and 3B also provide access to Laguna Middle.

The San Luis Driver Tripper (SLT) is a route option to/from SLO High School. The SLT makes two morning and afternoon trips that coincide with SLO High bell times. All transit route options provide access to downtown where students can transfer to the SLT. 

Discounted Student 31-Day Passes are available on the Token Transit mobile app, Laguna Middle front office, SLO High ASB store, the SLO Chamber of Commerce, and the City Finance Counter. 

K-12 students ride SLO Transit free the first week of school! The Summer Youth Ride Free program continues until August 25. Students simply display their Student ID to the driver upon boarding. No pass is required. 

Rideshare Program Signups
As another option to get to school, SLO Regional Rideshare is partnering with parents to find additional solutions, such as Schoolpool, that can help reduce traffic congestion and pollution around schools. A Schoolpool is made up of parents who want to share the responsibility of driving children to school, with the assistance of ride matching software and support from Rideshare to make finding a verified match easier. Parents who are interested in participating can sign up here:
