Holiday Bus offers free rides

Submitted By Clarence Johnson

In the spirit of sharing, AC Transit is once again celebrating this holiday season by offering all passengers who board AC TransitÕs cheerfully decorated ÒHoliday BusÓ free rides to their destinations.

Every year, AC Transit transforms one of its buses into a special holiday coach with brightly colored decorations that depict the joy and merriment of the season. Each day, the bus runs along a different route, giving riders throughout the district a chance to both see and ride the festive-looking bus.

And again this year, in a gesture of appreciation of its patrons, AC Transit has added a twist: The coachÕs fare box will be covered for the duration of the holidays. That means anyone who boards the bus from December 16, 2013 through January 3, 2014 will be allowed to ride for free.

ÒThe Holiday Bus is a token of gratitude to our riders,Ó said AC Transit General Manager David Armijo. ÒItÕs a small thing but it is a way for us to contribute in this season of sharing, and we intend to do so in hopes of making the season a little brighter for anyone who boards the bus.Ó
