Freedom to Explore! GMT understands how hard it is to manage transportation for your children during summer break. This year we are offering the Youth Summer Fun Wristband which offers UNLIMITED bus service for children ages 7-17 from June 13 through August 25 for only $25!
That’s more than two months for the price of one! The wristband gives children access to convenient, safe, reliable transportation to sports and summer programs, museums, parks, beaches, friends, family and much more. The best part is you gain the freedom and independence you’ve been looking for.
GMT is not responsible for lost or stolen wristbands. If you break your wristband, please bring the broken band back to GMT and we will replace it at no charge. Refunds on wristbands will not be given, all sales are final.
