The Road Ahead with RTC: St. Patrick’s Day Free Safe RIDE

By  | 

SPONSORED: The RTC is marking 17 years of providing a safe transportation choice to help people celebrate St. Patrick’s Day responsibly with the FREE Safe RIDE program. Scheduled RTC transit services will be free on Tuesday, March 17 from 4 p.m. until 2 a.m.

The goal of providing this free service is to keep our roads and crosswalks safe for everyone on the St. Patrick’s Day holiday. The RTC encourages people to celebrate safely and responsibly by not getting behind the wheel or walking while impaired.

“Whether you’re out celebrating, going to work, or you want to try our transit service for the first time, we welcome you on our buses,” said RTC Interim Executive Director Amy Cummings. “We don’t want cost to be a barrier for anyone trying to get home safely on St. Patrick’s Day, and we are proud to offer this free service to our community.”

Keep in mind, not all locations are served by transit, so the RTC recommends passengers check route and schedule information at to plan a trip.
