The RTA is celebrating World Car Free Day by encouraging all those who typically drive personal vehicles to use public transportation instead tomorrow, Saturday, September 22.
Whether or not you usually ride our system, Car Free Day is a great time to ride transit and enjoy its benefits. Riders in our region can save up to $12,000 a year by switching their daily commute from driving to taking public transportation. And, even those sitting in rush hour traffic save $400 a year because it reduces the number of cars on the road.
Don’t just take it from me, here are some people that enjoy the benefits of leaving the car at home and being “Car Free!”
I know exactly how long it will take me to get anywhere in the city - rain or shine!
