Teens Save Money with a MyLink Pass

June 2, 2015

Teens who want to get to a job or other destinations this summer without having to ask their parents for a ride can travel safely and independently with a MyLink summer bus pass. And as an added bonus, teens can get discounts at select area attractions by showing their MyLink Pass.

With a MyLink pass, teens ages 13-19 can get unlimited local bus rides for 3 months for just $30. The pass is accepted on PRTC’s OmniLink and Cross County Connector buses between June 1 and Sept. 5. Teens who get a MyLink pass now can start using it right away, which is great for these last days of school when students often have half days due to final exams.

Currently a one-way local bus ride costs $1.30, so a teen who takes at least 12 round-trips during the summer will save money by riding with a MyLink pass.

Getting three months of unlimited bus rides for $30 is a bargain, but teens can save even more by showing their MyLink pass at these attractions:

  • Potomac Nationals, Pfitzner Stadium, Woodbridge –$1 off general admission at home games
  • Prince William Ice Center, 5180 Dale Boulevard, Woodbridge –$2 off public skate entry
  • Bowl America, 13409 Occoquan Road, Woodbridge and 9000 Mathis Avenue, Manassas – five free games per day
  • Stonewall Pool, 8531 Stonewall Road, Manassas – $1 off admission.

With MyLink, teens won’t need to borrow the family car or beg for gas money to get around town. MyLink enables teens to have a safe, reliable ride to get to summer jobs, shopping centers, recreation centers, libraries and lots of other places where they want to go.
