Seniors ride the bus for free

Senior Citizens over age 65 can ride public buses for free through a program paid for by the Pennsylvania Lottery.

Senior passes can be obtained on the third floor of Pottstown borough hall between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. You must present a valid form of ID that includes your birthdate.

The disabled can get reduced fare passes at borough hall as well if they are younger than 65 and have a valid red, white and blue Medicare card. Forms for this pass must be picked up at Borough Hall and filled out then certified by the individual's medical professional if no Medicare card is available.
