Free Muni for Everyone 19 and Under Kicks Off August 15

San Francisco just announced that it will be expanding the Free Muni for Youth Program to include all youth starting August 15, 2021, in conjunction with the full-in-person-return of the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) 2021-2022 school year.The expansion will now allow all youth under the age of 19 to ride Muni, regardless of financial status or verification, without proof of payment. The one-year program will eliminate the current Free Muni for Youth application process.“So many of our youth depend on Muni to get around the City, and these fares have a significant impact on their budgets,” said Mayor Breed. “I can’t wait to see Muni buses packed with students eager to return to the classroom this Fall. This expansion will make San Francisco more accessible for all of our youth and, hopefully, foster a new generation of Muni riders. I want to thank Supervisor Melgar for all her work pushing to make this a reality.”
