JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - JETS wants to make it easy for Jonesboro teens to get around town this summer.

Beginning May 26 and running through Sept. 4, the Jonesboro's Economic Public Transit System will offer a discounted rate for riders between the ages of 12 and 18.

For 25-cents, riders will have access to stops all across the city, including the Jonesboro Pool Center, public library, and the Mall at Turtle Creek.

Kids must have a school-issued student ID with them in order to receive the discount.

Children under the age of 12 also qualify for the discounted rates, but they must be accompanied by an adult.

Unlimited ride passes are also available for $10. They may be purchased at the City Collector's window in the Municipal Center, 300 S. Church.
