METRO Hosts Annual Fare-Free Try Transit Day Wednesday, May 2

Posted on April 19, 2018 in Alerts, News

Rock Region METRO is once again participating in Metroplan’s annual Ditch the Keys campaign, promoting alternate transportation (walking, cycling, carpooling, using public transit and even telecommuting) to help reduce vehicle exhaust pollutants.

The Ditch the Keys message is part of the Ozone Action Days public awareness campaign regarding the harmful effects of ground-level ozone. In support of the Ditch the Keys message, METRO will host fare-free METRO Local and Express buses and METRO Streetcar service Wednesday, May 2 for Try Transit Day.

It’s a perfect time to visit the rrmetro.org maps and schedules for METRO service and plan your trip, download our METROtrack app and take a day to learn about our public transit system by enjoying a free ride! (And did we mention we have FREE WiFi on all buses and streetcars? Sounds like May 2 is going to be one productive day!)
