The WRTA is offering free bus rides all day Thursday, it’s all part of a nationwide “Dump the Pump Day.” 

People are encouraged to park their cars and use their city’s public transportation system.

The free rides are from 6 a.m. until midnight on fixed routes.

Organizers say the event is designed to remind people about the benefits of public transportation.

“It gets people to and from their jobs every day. It brings shoppers to merchants and believe it or not, it helps to increase property values,” said Marine Vaughn from WRTA.

You might want to download WRTA’s free app before catching the bus. It’s called “My Stop.”

It has information on bus routes and schedules. You can also sign up for text and e-mail notifications.
