The Tempe Youth Transit Pass Program allows Tempe and Guadalupe kids ages 6 to 18 to ride all Valley Metro bus routes and light rail for free. Passes are available at the Tempe Transit Store, 200 E. Fifth St., from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Free one hour public parking is located at 117 E. Fifth St.

If you lose your pass, you can get a new pass (up to three in one year) by paying a $5 replacement fee. For a replacement pass, either the parent or youth can visit the Transit Store and no additional documentation is required.

If you attend Tempe, Compadre, Marocs de Niza  or McClintock high schools AND LIVE IN TEMPE OR GUADALUPE, you can get your transit pass at the school. Go to the main office for more information and to get a registration form. If you get the pass at the school (not at the Transit Store), a parent does not need to be present nor is proof of residency or a birth certificate required. The school registrar will verify all the information.
