Mountain Metropolitan Transit (MMT) is offering free rides from July 1 through August 31, 2024.  This marks the third year MMT has participated in the Zero Fare for Better Air initiative.

The free fares are made possible by Senate Bill 24-032, which allows Colorado transit agencies to receive an Ozone Season Transit Grant. The grant aims to encourage the use of public transportation and reduce the number of cars on the road during the summer months, when ozone levels are typically at their highest.

“We are thrilled to be part of this very popular program for a third year”, Transit Division Manager Lan Rao said. “Last year we saw record ridership during Zero Fare for Better Air, and we hope even more people will take advantage of these free rides to experience public transit and help reduce air pollution in Colorado Springs.”

Free rides are available on all MMT buses as well as Metro Mobility paratransit services.
