Getting around during Youth Week a 'Breeze'

Getting around during Youth Week a 'Breeze'

During the week of May 25-30, youth will find it easier to get around the City of Lethbridge.

Lethbridge Transit will be removing all restrictions from youth transit passes during Youth Week. This means that from 6 a.m. on Monday, May 25 until 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, May 30, youth who have transit passes for school will be able to use their passes anytime transit is in operation.

 In addition, Youth Week partner organizations will be distributing more than 250 youth Breeze Card transit passes (valid only during Youth Week) for free.

 “This is a great opportunity for youth. It will give them a way to and from the many activities going on all week,” said Jeff McLarty, Executive Director of United Way of Lethbridge and South Western Alberta.  “We are very excited to be working with Lethbridge Transit to make this happen.”

Transit passes to use during Youth Week will be available through several participating Youth Week agencies including Youth One, the Boys and Girls Club of Lethbridge, the YWCA , Wood’s Homes, Lethbridge Family Services and United Way.

“We are hoping that families will take advantage of this opportunity and get to know programs and services for youth that are accessible by transit,” said McLarty.
