Foothill Transit is taking part in a national “Dump the Pump” promotion. Just present a coupon to a bus driver this Thursday and you can ride free all day. Here’s the link to the form to fill out.
Presumably this coupon would be good for anyone — commuters, joyriders, whoever — wanting to try out the Silver Streak bus that goes from the Montclair TransCenter and downtown Pomona to L.A. in a straight shot. When the service was introduced with free rides, I took a half-day off work and ate lunch at Philippe’s.
Omnitrans, the main San Bernardino County bus service, is offering free rides too; here’s a link to its coupon.
Both coupons will be handy for anyone trying to get around the Inland Valley that day without wheels.
