Kids Ride Free Changes for SY 2018-2019
The District and WMATA are implementing updates to the KRF program based on feedback from parents and students. These updates will make the program easier to use and more accessible. Students will no longer need to complete the two-tap activation process or wait for their pass to download before they can take their first trip. Instead, students will receive a new KRF SmarTrip card that will come pre-loaded with the Kids Ride Free pass and will be ready to use on Metrorail, Metrobus, and DC Circulator for school-related travel. The new KRF SmartTrip card is valid for the 2018-2019 school year including summer school.
