The Mayor and Council's Roundtable on Children and Youth will provide complimentary Greater Sudbury Transit passes to local youth this summer.
The initiative is designed to encourage more young people to ride public transit to local community programs and sports venues.
During last year's initiative, some 600 passes were distributed. The program has been extended and expanded for 2010.
Up to 2,500 passes will be distributed throughout the community, providing youth ages 12 to 24 with five free rides on Greater Sudbury Transit.
Passes will be distributed through local social service agencies and at all branches of the Greater Sudbury Public Library.
Youth who are interested in obtaining a five-ride pass are asked to visit their nearest branch of the Greater Sudbury Public Library, starting July 6.
Passes will be distributed on a first come, first served basis.
