Transit Agencies Across California Offer Free Rides to Celebrate California Clean Air Day
In celebration of California Clean Air Day, California transit agencies have teamed up to offer free rides. On Clean Air Day, help clear the air by trying an alternative form of transportation. Leave the car at home and try transit for free!
And yes – we’d like you to consider transit even if you are still working from home. As many of us return to our old habits, we’ve seen vehicle miles traveled return to 99% of what they were pre-pandemic even though estimates are that more than a quarter of us are working at home. Since transportation is the single biggest source of air pollution in California, we wanted to offer everything you can to do your part for clean air.
So give transit a try! Leave the stress of driving at home to do your part for clean air. Whether you take transit to work, to the store or to the game, help us ensure that every breath you take is a breath of clean air.
Make public transit part of your clean air pledge today! Got young children? Invite them to join you.
