Youth Pass

The MCT Summer Youth Pass allows students in Madison County to access summer jobs, visit friends, enjoy parks and recreation centers and save money!

Please keep in mind that while we are in the midst of this pandemic, we are asking passengers to limit travel on MCT buses to essential trips only.

Looking for a Summer Youth Pass? Check with your school office. Most Madison County middle and high schools will have Summer Youth Passes ready to be picked-up.

If not, call (618) 797-4600 or e-mail YouthPass@mct.org to request your Summer Youth Pass!

How to Ride MCT
Plan your ride. Pick-up a schedule or visit the Maps & Schedules page.
Board your MCT bus at any MCT bus stop along the desired route and wave so the driver knows to pull over.
Show the driver your Summer Youth Pass. Have your school ID with you in case the driver asks to see it.
Have a seat and ride for FREE all summer long!
Pull the cord one block before you would like to get off. The driver will let you off at the next safe intersection or bus stop sign.
