Celebrate Earth Day with Mountain Metropolitan Transit
Monday, April 22, 2013


      Mountain Metropolitan Transit (MMT) will celebrate Earth Day, Monday, April 22, by giving away new Day Passes to randomly selected customers. Free passes will be given out on all routes at various times throughout the day and into the evening. Bus drivers will give a free Day Pass to the next passenger to board the bus when queued by MMT radio dispatch. Transit staff will also be on hand at the downtown terminal from 1:15 p.m. through 3:15 p.m., conducting a question and answer session with anyone who may need additional information about local public transportation. The downtown terminal is located at 127 E. Kiowa Street.

      The new Day Pass costs $4.00 and gives customers unlimited rides on MMT’s fixed-route bus system. The pass expires at midnight the day of activation. The new Day Pass gives existing and new customers more options and is a useful tool for visitors who would like to check out local bus service, but are not interested in a monthly pass.

      Mountain Metropolitan Transit provides local fixed-route bus service and Metro Mobility ADA paratransit service for Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak region. All buses are wheelchair-lift equipped. Mountain Metropolitan Transit also provides other services such as Metro Rides’ ridesharing, vanpool, and bicycling programs. For added convenience, there are bike racks on all buses for riders who want to utilize the bike-n-busprogram.
