Always wanted to try the bus service? On Earth Day, April 22, Mountain Metropolitan Transit will offer free bus rides on city buses and the two commuter lines, the FrontRange Express north to Denver and the Ute Pass Express west to Divide.
The city of Colorado Springs operates the systems and wants to give loyal riders, as well as newcomers, the chance to experience the local service, according to Craig Blewitt, interim transit division manager.
Free bus rides also will be given to active duty military and reserves throughout May, in honor of Military Appreciation Month. Military passengers will need to show their identification cards to get the free service.
