Mississauga, April 29 (CINEWS): Once again the City of Mississauga is offering youth ages 12 to 14 the Freedom Pass, which allows swimming for free at City pools and riding MiWay free all summer long beginning July 1 through August 31.
“Summer is the perfect time for youth to get comfortable using transit,” said Geoff Marinoff, Transit Director. “Our goal with the program is to encourage them to take part in community events and programs around the city, while becoming familiar with MiWay transit routes.”
This year the Freedom Pass includes a Green Challenge, which encourages Freedom Pass holders to do green activities around Mississauga such as tree planting, visit a Farmers Market, volunteer at an Earth Market or participate in a bike ride. Pass holders participating in a green activity can take a selfie and upload it to their Instagram, Facebook or Twitter account using the hashtag #freetobegreen. Photos will be shared on the City’s Storify page.
