Ride Omnitrans free the week of Earth Day -April 22-26

April 19, 2019 

Don’t normally ride transit? Be kind (and overall awesome) to the Earth and ride Omnitrans free the week of Earth Day – April 22-26, 2019!

Our transportation use is responsible for 26% of greenhouse gases emitted in the United States. Riding Omnitrans for just one day, instead of driving your car, cuts carbon emissions by 20 pounds. Over a year, that translates to nearly 5,000 pounds of emissions! Omnitrans fleet of 178 transit buses is powered by natural gas, resulting in less pollution, which means cleaner air for us all to breathe.

If you’re convinced to go green for Earth Week, here’s how to redeem your mobile 1-day pass:

  • Download the free Token Transit app by texting TOKEN to 41411 or click here from your smartphone.

  • Once your account is created, visit www.tokentransit.com/omniearthweek2019 to access the free pass beginning on April 22. One per person.

  • That’s it. That’s the trick. You’re ready to save on gas and leave your car at home. Simply flash your paperless pass to the driver when boarding Omnitrans.
