Richland One Students can ride The COMET for Free

Richland One is partnering with The COMET, (Central Midlands Transit) to allow high schools students to ride The COMET in its service area at no charge to the student. Because this free ridership opportunity is being made available at this time, the District is requesting that the student and parent/guardian notify the school of the intent to ride the COMET. In order for students to participate, students will have to present their ID when boarding a bus. Students’ school ID numbers must be provided to The COMET in order to create student rider passes. 
Students may not leave school early or arrive late without appropriate parental permission, including but not limited to written and\or electronic communication. The Student Code of Conduct and all school board policies apply to students while riding the Comet.  Appropriate disciplinary measures may apply to students who violate Richland One rules while riding Comet.

If you do not want your child to have access to this service, please contact your child’s school administration by February 1, 2019. This service will also be available during the 2019-2020 school year and in InfoSnap.
