Citibus gives free rides on Thursday

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Everyone is invited to ride Citibus free of charge on June 21.

This is in observance of National Dump the Pump Day. The goal of National Dump the Pump Day is to encourage motorists to save money by using public transportation instead of paying high prices at the gas pump.

The event has been observed by transportation agencies across the nation for the past seven years. In 2006, gas prices were at a high of $3 per gallon — a price many people would welcome today, as gasoline prices have been hovering around $3.35 in Lubbock as an average.

Sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association, the event is intended to promote public transportation as an option for increasingly hard-pressed Americans. Citibus Transit hopes to spread the message beyond its current riders in order to gain riders who have never experienced the public transit system. 

Citibus maps are listed online at www.citibus.com

Regular rates range from $1.75 for a one-way pass to monthly passes for $50. Citibus is ADA compliant and children as young as six can ride the busses, as are also a designated Safe Place in Lubbock.
