Students Encouraged to Obtain DC One Card or Complete a Student Travel Card Application Before June 12
(Washington, D.C.) The District Department of Transportation’s (DDOT’s) School Transit Subsidy Program encourages District of Columbia Public School system students who plan to attend summer school in the District to obtain a DC One Card, at a school that currently participates in the program before June 12, 2013.
Students who have a DC One Card and are registered for Summer School, can print out a Summer Session Eligibility Letter after June 16, 2013 to purchase a reduced rate transit pass after June 16 at one of the Metro Sales offices in the District.
Charter and Private Summer School students should complete and submit a DDOT Summer School Student Travel Card application before Friday, June 7, 2013, if possible, at their respective school. Parents and students may request a DDOT summer student travel card through your school. If the school does not have applications, please have the school representative contact the Transit Subsidy Program office at 202-673-1740. Please complete the application and give it to your school and the school administrator or designated staff person will approve and fax the application to the DDOT’s Mass Transit Office. A purple-colored summer travel card will be sent to the school for distribution to the student.
In order to have a smooth start for the summer session, DDOT encourages all District summer session students to begin these steps before summer school starts.
