Allen County RTA offers free bus rides

The Allen County Regional Transit Authority gave their riders a little bit of a break.

It was part of the RTA's Customer Appreciation Day, where riders could enjoy free bus rides around the city from the morning to late afternoon.  The Allen County RTA wanted to be able to thank their customers, and help them find their way to the downtown area.

"We decided to go ahead and offer free rides throughout our system today (08/12/17) to encourage people to come downtown and to ride the bus," said Allen County RTA executive director Shelia Haney.  "It's a Saturday, it's beautiful day, and they might as well just get on the bus and ride around and see how easy and convenient it is."

The Allen County RTA were also present at the Activate Allen County Healthy Families Expo.
