One step on the bus, means one small step for the Earth.

This Thursday, April 22nd, BC Transit and the Victoria Regional Transit Commission (VRTC) are celebrating Earth Day by offering free rides throughout the day!

On both conventional routes and handyDART services in the region, mask up, hop on, and venture to any of your favourite places in the city for free.

“Earth Day helps shine a spotlight on the importance of sustainability and encourages people to make choices that will help protect our environment,” said BC Transit in a statement.

“Choosing transit instead of driving is one easy way to take action. It not only helps to ease traffic congestion, but also decreases greenhouse emissions by reducing the number of vehicles on the road.”

We’re still in the midst of a pandemic, so make sure you’re spaced out and masked up!
