To celebrate Earth Day on Friday, April 22, Metro is offering free rides on our buses, trains and bike share. Free rides begin 4am on April 22 and continue until 3am on Saturday, April 23. They’re offering free rides to encourage people to take transit, which helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions in LA County. How to access free rides:
