Bonus: New Discounts at Area Attractions
The OmniLink Teen Summer Pass, which enables teens to get unlimited local bus rides for the whole summer for one low price, goes on sale June 3. And this year, teens will save even more money by showing their Teen Pass at several fun, teen-friendly attractions that are partnering with the Teen Summer Pass program.
Teens ages 13-19 may use the OmniLink Teen Summer Pass on OmniLink and Cross County Connector buses between Monday, June 3 and Saturday, August 31, 2013. The pass costs $30, and in return teens get an unlimited number of local bus rides for three full months! With the cost of a regular one-way bus ride currently at $1.20, a teen who takes at least 13 round-trips during the summer will be saving money. Passes will be sold at multiple locations from June 3 – August 2, 2013.
Getting three months of unlimited bus rides for $30 is a bargain, but teens can save even more when showing their Teen Pass at these attractions:
- Potomac Nationals, Pfitzner Stadium, Woodbridge –$1 off general admission at Friday home games;
- Prince William Ice Center, 5180 Dale Boulevard, Woodbridge –$2 off public skate entry;

With the OmniLink Teen Summer Pass, teens won’t need to borrow the family car or beg for gas money to get around town. The pass 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.

Teens who have a photo ID should bring it with them when purchasing a pass because a sticker will be applied to the front of the ID showing that they have purchased an OmniLink Teen Summer Pass for 2013. Teens who don’t have a photo ID will be given a Teen Summer Pass card with a sticker. Teens simply show their ID with the sticker, or the Summer Pass card with the sticker to the bus operator each time they board.
