Transit systems in the Tri-State are offering free rides to people who ditch the car and bike to work on Friday.

Free fare will be offered in honor of National Bike to Work Day May 17.

Metro, the Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky (TANK), Butler County Regional Transit Authority (BCRTA) and Clermont Transportation Connection (CTC) will allow bicycle commuters to ride for free, according to a news release.

The idea is to demonstrate “how easy it is to bike and ride every day.”

All Metro, TANK and BCRTA buses have front-loading bike racks as well as many CTC buses. Each rack can hold two bikes. Only foldable bikes that can be stored under a seat are allowed on board the buses.
