Ride the Bus for Free During Zero Fare for Better Air in August

240-x-240

Greeley Evans Transit (GET) and Poudre Express officials are excited to join Zero Fare for Better Air, a collaborative, statewide initiative designed to reduce ground-level ozone by increasing use of public transit.

During the month of August, customers can ride GET and Poudre Express busses with zero fare. This program is made possible by Colorado Senate Bill 22-180 and in partnership with the Colorado Energy Office.

Benefits of Public Transit

Riding transit promotes cleaner air. Approximately 84% of the greenhouse gas emissions that come from transportation are due to day-to-day commutes. By leaving the car at home, a person can save up to 20 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions every day.

Some of the additional benefits of using transit include cost savings, gas savings, traffic reduction, time savings, and stress reduction making a daily commute better for all.

To learn how to hop on board to participate in Zero Fare for Better Air, visit greeleyevanstransit.com/zerofare or call 970-350-9290.
