STUDENTS CATCH CHEAP RIDE WITH $20 'HAUL PASS'

COUNTYWIDE

Students out on summer vacation now have a new way to catch a cheap ride to popular hangouts around the county. Pasco's public transportation office is offering a $20 "haul pass" that will offer unlimited rides during the summer. The pass is available to students who are eligible for a reduced fare ID card and is good from now through Aug. 18. Commissioner Pat Mulieri had suggested the program. She said the pass would be good for kids who want to use the new route along State Road 54 to head to the Shops at Wiregrass or the movie theater at the Grove shopping center. Passes are available at the Public Transportation office at 8620 Galen Wilson Blvd., Port Richey. For information, call (727) 834-3322.
