Madison County Transit is giving students from around the county the ability to ride their busses for a reduced fee this summer. The 2014 MCT Summer Youth Pass program began earlier this week. The free Summer Youth Passes have been distributed to all Madison County students in the 7th through 12 grades, providing unlimited rides on MCT's fixed-route bus system from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
They are also available to those in Kindergarten through 6th grade upon request, according to agency spokesman S.J. Morrison.
