Morning service to Port Angeles High School will be discontinued for the summer on the No. 10 Joyce bus.
Afternoon and evening service to Peninsula College will be dropped for the No. 14 Forks bus.
The special trips will resume in September, Transit officials said.
Meanwhile, Clallam Transit announced its 14th consecutive summer youth pass program for kids and young adults between 6 and 19 years old.
Youths can travel on regular fixed routes or dial-a-ride buses through Labor Day for $20.
By comparison, a youth base fare pass is $18 per month, and a youth premium fare pass is $36 per month.
The summer pass is for three months. Clallam and Jefferson transit systems honor each other’s passes. They also can be used on Mason and Grays Harbor public transit systems.
This is the last year of a three-year cooperative agreement among the public transit systems to coordinate travel on the Olympic Peninsula for young people.
The Summer Youth Pass is designed to encourage more youth ridership on system buses and to respond to take some of the pressure off busy parents who otherwise would shuttle their young people to summer activities.
“With unlimited rides all summer, across four counties and around the Olympic Peninsula, there isn’t a better transportation deal anywhere,” said Wendy Clark-Getzin, Clallam Transit’s general manager, in a news release.
Clallam passes can be purchased at the Clallam Transit System office at 830 W. Lauridsen Blvd., Port Angeles, or at pass outlets.
Pass outlets in Port Angeles are at Albertsons, 114 E. Lauridsen Blvd.; Mount Pleasant IGS, 3010 E. U.S. Highway 101; Swain’s General Store, 602 E. First St.; and Bay Variety, 135 W. First St.
In Sequim, the passes can be purchased at city offices at 609 W. Washington St., Suite 17.
In Forks, they are available at Forks Outfitters on U.S. Highway 101.
They also are available through the mail.
In Jefferson County, the passes are available at the transit office at 1615 W. Sims Way, Port Townsend, or from public bus drivers.
