The free rides will help fill the gap left by the Vacaville Unified School District's decision to eliminate home-to-school transportation to all students except those with special needs.

The district's school board approved that budget reduction measure June 25.

The free rides to and from school for students and their parents are on Aug. 13-14 and Aug. 17-21, city spokesman Mark Mazzaferro said.

After the free rides expire, City Coach will offer a Parent Pass that allows a parent or guardian to ride to and from school with a fare-paying child for free. The daily youth fare is $1.25 and a monthly youth Pass is $21.

"We think this is a great way to help kids get to school and alleviate some of the stress parents will be facing when school begins," said Brian McLean, Vacaville's Transit Manager.

For more information call City Coach at (707) 449-6000.
