Grade 12 graduates are getting a free pass from the Victoria Regional Transit System this month.

B.C. Transit and its partner communities are again offering the GradPASS: two days of free, unlimited transit travel during the month of June.

It’s expected that more than 21,000 GradPASS cards will be given out this year.

GradPASS was first introduced in 1988.

Over the past 28 years, the number of participating communities has grown to 45, from Sooke to Revelstoke, from Abbotsford to Hazelton and Prince George.
