METRO Hosts Annual Ride Transit for Free Day Friday, May 26

Posted on May 16, 2017 in News

Rock Region METRO is once again participating in Metroplan’s annual Ditch the Keys Week, promoting alternate transportation (walking, cycling, carpooling, using public transit and even telecommuting) to help reduce vehicle exhaust pollutants. Ditch the Keys Week is part of the Ozone Action Days public awareness campaign regarding the harmful effects of ground-level ozone. As part of the weeklong observance, Rock Region METRO will host fare-free METRO Local and Express buses and METRO Streetcar service Friday, May 26 for Ride Transit for Free 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? Sounds like May 26 is going to be one productive day!)
