TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Topeka Public High School students can now ride the Topeka Metro for free, but only to and from school.

The Topeka Metro says they are offering free rides for 501 high school students during the school year. Last month, the district unanimously approved the purchase of 3,000 bus passes from the Metro.

Susan Duffy, the Metro General Manager, says the intent is to make sure all students who want a bus pass have one, even if they have a car.

Students who want a pass can get one from their high school office. They will need their student I.D. when they board the bus.
