TOPEKA, KANSAS (April 4, 2017) ---Topeka Metro has a handful of promotions coming up that you won't want to miss! First, we kick off our "No Pay Earth Day," campaign Saturday, April 22.  Earth Day was started on April 22, 1970, as a way to raise public awareness and concern for the environment and correlation between pollution and public health. A good way to reduce your carbon footprint is to hop on the Topeka Metro bus that day to ride for FREE and decrease the number of vehicles on the road! This promotion is applicable to fixed routes only.

Our second promotion honors everyday volunteers who donate their time and efforts in many ways in our community. "Volunteers Ride FREE," week at Topeka Metro is April 24 through April 29, on all fixed routes, and a limit of two free rides per day on the lift service. We thank all who volunteer in Topeka!

Our third promotion commemorates Older Americans Month in May. More than ever before, older Americans are working longer and engaging in their communities. Topeka Metro honors our senior citizens with our "Seniors Ride FREE," promotion throughout the month of May,  with free rides for those who are 65 and older. This promotion is for fixed routes only.

Our fourth promotion is dedicated to public employees. Since 1985, Public Service Recognition Week has been celebrated the first week ofMay, and organized annually to honor the men and women who serve our nation as federal, state, county and local government employees. "Public Employees Ride FREE," the week of May 8 through 13, and a work ID must be shown to the bus driver when boarding the bus. This promotion is for fixed routes only.

Finally, our popular "Kids Ride FREE," campaign starts May 15th and lasts through August 15th. This is a great way for the youth in our community ages 18 and under to travel safely throughout Topeka at no charge. Topeka Metro has partnered with family-friendly businesses in the city where youth can go to have fun this summer! See the full list on our website and on our promotional materials. This promotion is for fixed routes only.
