March break transit breaks for kids

Transit systems in Barrie, Niagara Falls, Oakville and Toronto are making it easier for kids to get around, while they’re enjoying their break from school next week.


Next week, high school students can use their Power Passes all day long Mondays to Fridays when they ride Barrie Transit buses, instead of only after school hours or on Saturdays and Sundays.

The pass costs $25 each month.

You can find out more about the Power Pass here.

Niagara Falls

From Saturday, March 12 until Sunday, March 20, students can ride any Niagara Falls Transit bus for just 25 cents!


Again this year, kids in Oakville can use their Freedom Passes when boarding Oakville Transit buses all day Mondays to Fridays during the break.

The passes usually allow students between the ages of 6 and 18 to travel on any Oakville Transit bus after 5 p.m. Mondays to Fridays and all day weekends and holidays. Next week, you can use your Freedom Pass all day and all week. (You can buy a Freedom Pass for just $10 a month.)

In Toronto, you can buy Day Family / Group Passes every day of the March break to travel with a group anywhere that the TTC can take you — within the city of Toronto — for just $10.

You can use each pass for one day only for a group of as many as six people — two adults with no more than four children or teens younger than 19. (Or… one adult with no more than five children or teens younger than 19.)

You can use the Family / Group Pass any day from Monday, March 14 until Friday, March 18. Day / Family Passes are also available on Saturdays, March 12 and 19 and Sundays, March 13 and 20, as they are on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the year.

If you plan to use the pass to ride on a TTC bus operating beyond the Toronto city limits — or on an express route that requires an extra fare — you’ll have to add more money into the farebox when you use the Day / Family Pass.
