Kids Ride Free Program

The Kids Ride Free (KRF) SmarTrip card can also be used this summer for transportation to and from activities related to MBSYEP. Your KRF SmarTrip card can be used for Metrorail, Metrobus, and for the DC Circulator. MBSYEP will not provide an additional SMARTRIP if the participant is eligible for Kids Ride Free. If you currently have a KRF SmarTrip card for school, please hold on to it so that you can use it this summer.

If you previously received a KRF SmarTrip card, but have lost or misplaced it this year, please request a new Kids Ride Free SmarTrip card from your school’s DC One Card administrator. Please be aware that all lost cards will be reported to WMATA and will no longer be active.
