[ARCHIVED] FREE summer bus passes available for kids!

20170712 Summer Bus Pass Flyer PIC

The City of Nashua is happy to announce free summer bus passes will be available beginning Wednesday, July 12th. This summer bus pass will connect kids to some of Nashua’s most popular recreation and activity sites. Kids 12 and younger can ride the bus with a guardian, but kids 12 and older can ride the bus alone. There will not be a bus monitor or additional supervision for once children once they arrive at their destinations. 

It can be hard to keep up a scholastic routine in a season packed with distractions and departures. The summer bus pass will also allow kids to visit the public library and/or engage in various educational activities throughout Nashua before the next school year. Many children, especially struggling readers, forget some of what they've learned or slip out of practice during the summer months. The library has summer reading programs available to kids of all ages, including teenagers. Brushing up on skills, before the school year, is the perfect way to spend a rainy day or escape the hot sun this summer.

Children can also be at an increased risk of weight gain when they are out of school during the summer months. Healthy, physically active kids are more likely to be academically motivated, alert, and successful. The hope is that kids will hop aboard the buses and keep busy this summer with some good, old fashioned play. An added bonus, all city buses are equipped with bike racks so kids can travel with their bicycles to their destinations!

If you would like to learn more about the free summer bus passes, contact Courtney Ellison from the Division of Public Health and Community Services at 603-589-4543 or  Passes are available Monday-Friday at The Divison of Public Health and Community Services located at 18 Mulberry Street.
