Sun Metro Reminds Veterans of Discounted and Free Bus Rides

El Paso, Texas – Sun Metro reminds the public that it provides a free 90-day bus pass and a one month discounted rate through nonprofit agencies to qualified veterans. Veterans requiring transit services will have access to fixed-route service free up to 90 consecutive days.
 
“Sun Metro is proud to honor veterans who have faithfully served our country,” said Sun Metro Director Jay Banasiak. “We recognize the need for our veterans to have transportation and it is our honor to help our veterans where we can.”
 
To participate in the 90-day pass program or to obtain a 30-day discounted rate pass, interested veterans can visit their service agency for an application or call Sun Metro for a list of current participating agencies. Riders will be asked to show their Sun Metro issued Veteran ID and display their pass when boarding any Sun Metro fixed route bus.
 
These programs will increase access to our high quality bus system throughout the service areas and assist veterans who seek new employment opportunities or have any other transit needs. This is a small way the City of El Paso thanks veterans for their dedication to our country. 
 
For more information on the program, or currently participating agencies, please contact (915) 212-3338 or (915) 212-3340.
