Active living in Kingston Ontario

Grade 9 Students Ride the Bus for Free

Grade 9 students are being offered a free Kingston Transit Pass to encourage them to ride the bus to access recreational programs throughout the city as part of Kingston Gets Active’s Grade 9 Community Activity Pass program. Kingston Gets Active, a community-wide partnership of organizations including school boards, KFL&A Public Health, the City of Kingston,  the YMCA of Kingston, and the Heart and Stroke Foundation, administers the Grade 5 and 9 Community Activity Pass (ActivPass) program throughout Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox & Addington (KFL&A) Counties.

Students of Bayridge Secondary School had the chance to participate in an orientation session on April 5. This program helps eliminate barriers which could regularly inhibit ridership and is supported by a grant from the United Way/City of Kingston Community Investment Fund through the Limestone Learning Foundation. Kingston Transit and City Hall have been very supportive of this endeavor.
