The City of Prince George is waiving bus fares for all riders in celebration of national Clean Air Day on June 7.
Canadians are encouraged to take public transit, cycle or walk to decrease air pollution on Clean Air Day.
“Every year, the city partners with BC Transit on a number of transit programs and promotions. We are happy to waive bus fares to encourage citizens to try our transit system,” said Dave Bradshaw, city transportation and technical services manager. “The city is committed to providing accessible transportation options for residents in Prince George.”
In addition, cyclists can ride for free during Go By Bike Week (May 29 to June 4) and Grade 12 gradates can take part in the GradPASS program, which provides two free bus trips during June to encourage grads to plan a safe ride home.
Schools will provide the GradPASS later this month. Students just scratch off their chosen travel days, and present the GradPASS card and a valid student ID when boarding the bus.
