Free BART Rides for School Field Trips Program

BART has partnered with a local non-profit, The Youth Transportation Organization, or “Yoots”, with the goal of providing free field trips on BART to Bay Area students. This program will provide a one-stop-shop for teachers for free and easy transportation, and to discover appropriate field trip destinations that will enhance their classroom curriculum and student experience.

Past field trip programs have been extremely popular and sold-out within a few weeks.  Through the BART partnership with Yoots and grant-funding, it is intended that this program be a sustained, ongoing initiative for eligible schools, students and teachers throughout the year – year after year.

This highly-visible program will provide a much-needed assistance to resource-constrained teachers and is currently seeking sponsors. If you or your company would like to provide funding for free field trips on BART or to learn more about program details, please contact:
