FAST bus passes allow students to stay after school for activities
from The Fayetteville Observer
Terry Sanford High School student Akia Patterson was struggling in math last year and wanted to stay after school for tutoring help. But she couldn't because she had no way of getting home if she missed the school bus. Then school social worker Pamela Stevenson gave her some passes allowing her to ride for free on the city's bus system, the Fayetteville Area System of Transit. It was a huge help, said Akia, now a 17-year-old senior at Terry Sanford. Stevenson got the passes for Akia through the bus service's Ride FAST program, which is aimed at helping students who can't participate in after-school programs because they lack a reliable way to get home.
