Young people in San Mateo County can get around at a huge discount this summer with the SamTrans Summer Youth Pass.
The $40 pass gives riders ages 17 and younger unlimited access to SamTrans bus service from June 1 through Aug. 31, according to SamTrans officials.
The bus system includes dozens of routes throughout San Mateo County and into San Francisco and Palo Alto.
Starting Tuesday, passes can be purchased in person at SamTrans headquarters at 1250 San Carlos Ave. in San Carlos or by mailing or faxing an order form that can be found at http://www.samtrans.com/riderinformation/Youth/Summer_Youth_Pass.html.
