Ride ART bus service for a quarter during Strive Not to Drive Week

Press release from the city of Asheville:

The City of Asheville will promote Strive Not to Drive Week with reduced bus fares on ART buses all that week. Ride for only a quarter! Also paratransit service will be free May 12-18.

And ART will observe Transit Rider Appreciation Day on May 16, with breakfast snacks at the ART Transit Station from 7 to 10 a.m., plus busker performances from 3 to 6 p.m.

Any day of the week, riding ART bus service is a bargain, for only $1 adults and 50 cents for students. Strive Not to Drive Week offers a little more incentive. For information about ART bus routes, visit the ART bus webpage. The City of Asheville is proud that its transit fleet includes seven hybrid buses and 23 fueled by biodiesel, contributing to a more earth-friendly, sustainable Asheville.

Get out of your car and groove to alternative ways of getting around, Asheville!
