Free Fares on Friday, April 22, 2022 in Celebration of Earth Day
METRO is proud to announce fare-free rides on all METRO services, including fixed-routes, ADA, SCAT, METROConnect, and Call-A-Bus, in celebration of Earth Day, all day on April 22.
Earth Day is an internationally recognized event that raises awareness about climate change and the steps that can be taken to mitigate it. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, car transportation alone accounts for 47% of the carbon footprint of a typical American family with two cars. If just one driver per household switched to taking public transportation for a daily commute of 10 miles each way, this would save 4,627 pounds of carbon dioxide per household per year.
Please invite your friends, family, and neighbors to try public transit for free this Earth Day.
