GRANITE CITY – Madison County Transit is again offering the Student Monthly Pass for the 2017-2018 school year.
Students in kindergarten through 12th grade using a Student Monthly Pass have access to unlimited rides for an entire calendar month on any MCT Shuttle, MCT Cross County or MCT Regional routes in Madison County. September passes are now on sale and can be purchased for $20 each month.
“The Student Monthly Pass is an affordable option for families in Madison County during the school year,” said Jerry Kane, MCT managing director. “Many students rely on the pass to access after-school jobs, co-op programs and extracurricular activities throughout the year.”
Student Monthly Passes are available September through May. During the summer, students can take advantage of MCT’s free Summer Youth Pass program. Ridership on the pass program, which continues through Labor Day, will eclipse 40,000 boardings before the summer is over.
The Student Monthly Pass can be purchased in the following ways:
• Online at www.mct.org with a credit or debit card.
• In Person at the MCT Main Office in Granite City with cash, credit or debit card.
Individuals purchasing passes in person can visit the Main Office at One Transit Way, Granite City, IL 62040. Office hours for pass purchases are Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. The equivalent fare media for adults, the MCT Local Monthly Pass, is available for $50 a month.
