Waco Transit SystemWISDs free student rides aboard Waco Transit continues to set new records.  In February, 2470 student rides were logged which is an all time high for the initiative.  Beginning officially back in August, about 100 students per week rode the Waco Transit busses.  On most days now, more than 100 per day take advantage of this unique opportunity.  We hit an all time high daily mark of 143 in late February.  The grand total for student rides is now 10,274 rides and rising.  Thanks for spreading the news about free rides on Waco Transit.  

Don't forget to tell the students about the realtime bus tracking app at http://www.ridewaco.com/.  You can follow the busses in real time, check any route and find out when the bus will arrive at each stop along that route. Search the AppStore for "Ride Systems".
