Ride for free in October, says Cap Metro

Monday, September 27, 2021 by Tai Moses

Travelers who have been frustrated with Capital Metro’s somewhat unreliable service lately will be pleasantly surprised to find their money’s no good when it comes to paying the fare. Acknowledging that its “persistent staff shortage is affecting the quality of service our customers have come to expect,” the transit agency is offering free fares throughout the month of October. “We’re doing this to say thank you to our customers, who’ve been dealing with the effects on our service of staffing shortages,” Capital Metro announced. The free fares apply to all services except for MetroBike. And by the way, if you’re pondering a career change, Capital Metro is actively recruiting for bus drivers and train engineers.
