Youth Connect

Through a contractual agreement between People Mover and the Anchorage School District (ASD), students are able to ride People Mover for free! Whether using People Mover to commute to and from school, going to a sporting event or to the mall, students have unlimited rides just by showing their valid ASD School ID when boarding. Any bus. Any route. Any time!

The Youth Connect Program began in the 2014-2015 school year as a pilot program with East High School. In 2016, the Youth Connect Program expanded to include Bartlett, Benny Benson, West High, SAVE and Steller in addition to East High. As of the 2019-2020 school year, the program consists of 40+ schools (listed below) allowing students to enjoy their independence and save money by riding People Mover for free, year round!

2022-2023 School Year

*If a student has not yet been issued an ID but attends a participating school, they may still ride for free, but must notify the driver upon boarding. Printed schedules may be presented, temporarily, until the student ID is received.

For the 2022-2023 school year, ASD students with 2021-2022 school IDs may use that ID as their bus pass until the IDs have been issued for the new school year. Afterwards, ASD IDs for the 2022-2023 school year will be required at boarding.
If a student has not received their 2022-2023​ school ID as the deadline approaches, contact that particular school for ID issuing information.​
