Kids Ride Free

The Kids Ride Free (KRF) program allows students to ride for free on Metrobus, Metrorail, and the DC Circulator while travelling within the District.

To be eligible for participation in the KRF program, each student must be:

  • A resident of the District of Columbia, and
  • Age 5 through 21, and
  • Enrolled in an elementary or secondary public, charter, private or parochial school located within the District, or youth in the care of the District.

School Year 2021 - 2022 

The Kids Ride Free (KRF) program continues to grow! In School Year 2021-2022, DC students can request a new SmarTrip Card for traveling on public transit systems within the District. A supply of the new cards will be sent directly to all DC public and charter schools for distribution to eligible students. Students can collect their new School Year 2021-2022 KRF SmarTrip cards from their school ID administrators like they did during the last school year.

School Year 2021-2022 Kids Ride Free SmarTrip cards will remain valid through September 30, 2022.

For more information, please review the Kids Ride Free Frequently Asked Questions. If you have additional questions about the KRF program, please contact your school’s administrator or the District Department of Transportation’s School Transit ID Subsidy Program Office at (202) 673-1740 or school.transit@dc.gov
