The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority will offer free rides on its bus, rail and bike share system on Earth Day, Friday, April 22.
The free rides are being offered in recognition of public transit’s role in helping to improve the environment and reduce greenhouse gases that cause climate change. Metro hopes more people will try public transit, which provides a healthy and sustainable transportation alternative for commuters.
All Metro bus routes and rail lines will be free from 3 a.m. on April 22 to 2:59 a.m. on April 23. Bus fare boxes will be deactivated, and all train station fare gates will be opened to enable people to freely use public transit.
Riders are encouraged to use the Metro Transit app to plan trips. Metro operates 119 bus lines, six rail lines and more than 200 bike share stations. To redeem a free Metro Bike Share ride, select “1-Ride” at any Metro Bike Share kiosk, online or in the Metro Bike Share app, and enter the promo code 042222. The code can be redeemed multiple times throughout the day.
Metrolink will also offer free rides on all trains on April 22. Tickets will not be required.
