All the key spots where youth ages 12-18 might go this summer are accessible through the use of the Franklin Transit system, and the best part is, rides are half-price.
It’s through the return of the system’s Tweens and Teens promotion that began May 22 and will run through the summer. Youth 12-18 can ride Franklin Transit’s fixed routes for half-price: one-way fares for 50 cents.
With over 100 stops, tweens and teens can go to places such as Independence Square, Williamson County Recreation Center, downtown Franklin, the Factory at Franklin, Galleria Mall, Wal-Mart, the Williamson County Library, and Columbia State Community College, among others.
Transit riders can maximize local intermodal transportation, as all fixed route transit vehicles are equipped with bicycle racks. The racks, designed for easy loading and unloading, are available at no extra charge.
“Our Tweens and Teens Summertime Special can save parents money, gas and time with their children riding Franklin’s public transit service throughout the city,” Debbie Henry, TMA Group executive director, said.
Transit service runs Monday through Saturday. Franklin’s transit service provides safe, affordable and timely transportation. All youth must be 12 years of age or older to ride the transit service without an adult. Routes and schedules can be obtained by visiting http://www.franklintransit.org/or calling 615-628-0260.
The TMA Group is a regional leader in customizing environmentally friendly, multimodal solutions for employers and communities. The TMA Group manages and operates the Franklin Transit service.
