Santa Ynez Valley Transit (SYVT) has published a free Activities Guide highlighting 30 youth-friendly destinations in Buellton, Solvang, Santa Ynez and Los Olivos along with corresponding SYVT bus stops on a fun and easy-to-read map.

Highlighted destinations include parks, theaters, museums, farms, restaurants and libraries.

“The Activities Guide provides residents with local ideas for kid-friendly entertainment, all accessible via SYVT,” said Matt van der Linden, Solvang’s Public Works Director. “This is a great complement to the SYVT Summer Youth Pass, as it allows pass users to access everything our valley has to offer on the safe and reliable SYVT bus.”

Santa Ynez Valley youth can buy a $20 Summer Youth Pass, which provides unlimited rides during the month of purchase. The pass is available to riders 6 to 20 years old for use in June, July, and August.

The Activities Guide is available at the SYVT office, Stuart C. Gildred Family YMCA, Solvang Public Library, Santa Ynez Library, Solvang School District office, and Flying Flags RV Resort & Campground.

The youth pass can be purchased at the SYVT Office at 431 S. Second St., Suite 9, in Solvang.
