Grade 8 Transit Quest

Grade 8 Transit Quest

The Grade 8 Transit Quest program encourages students to use Peterborough Transit by providing them with a FREE transit pass for March Break.

The Quest works to increase the familiarity of city youth with the Peterborough Transit system as they begin to travel independently. By increasing comfort levels at this age, transit can become a mode of transportation that is both normal and accessible.

In 2019, Grade 8 students took 2779 rides over the March Break.

Grade 8 Transit Quest is back for 2022. For more information visit
