It’s the third annual Dump the Pump day at public transit authorities all across the country! Transit authorities are pulling out the PR campaigns and free pass contests. Some cities are going the distance and letting gas-burdened citizens board for zilch. Here’s a sampling of places you can get around town for nothing today:
Biloxi, Mississippi: Free rides on all fixed bus routes.
Charleston, South Carolina: All routes free.
Fort Worth, Texas: Free bus rides all day.
Orlando, Florida: All-day passes for the LYNX.
St. Louis, Missouri: Travel free on MetroRide and MetroLink all day.
San Francisco Bay Area, California: Free access all day to bus and light-rail lines. Free morning rides on selected trains and ferries.
New Bedford/Fall River, Massachusetts: Free bus rides all day long.
Orange County, California: Free one-day bus pass valid any day this week!
Surf to your local (or local-for-today) transit authority to see if they are giving away free transportation. If not, ask them to get on board for next year!
