All LexTran bus and American Red Cross Wheels rides will be free on Thursday in celebration of National Dump the Pump Day.
Thursday marks the fifth anniversary of Dump the Pump Day, when people are encouraged to ride public transportation instead of driving.
In addition to getting free rides on Thursday, LexTran and Wheels passengers will get "Dump the Pump" stickers. The passengers can upload pictures of themselves wearing the stickers to the LexTran Facebook page, which will give them a chance to win a prize.
Public transportation systems across the country are participating in Dump the Pump Day, sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association.
Never miss a local story.
