WHITEHORSE, Yukon — Yahoo! News Canada reports that students at some high schools here now have the option to ride city buses instead of school buses for free.
The government of Yukon and the city of Whitehorse created a pilot project to give Whitehorse secondary school students access to free transit passes for the 2013-14 school year, according to a news release from the Yukon government. The release also stated that the access to passes is intended to give students another option for transportation if they stay late for after-school activities, and for getting to places other than home.
The transit passes were purchased by Yukon Education, at a discounted rate, from the city of Whitehorse.
