Free bus rides offered again this year

Posted: Tuesday, January 02, 2001

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Anchorage is offering free bus rides again this year, but not for as long as last year.

Riders beginning Tuesday will be allowed to ride the bus in the city without paying the usual $1 fee for adults and 50 cents for children or seniors. The free fare will stay in effect through February.

The program ran from November through January last year. But city officials scaled it back this year out of fear of budget cuts after a tax cap initiative was placed on the November ballot.

While the federal government reimburses the city for the fares, the city must pay for maintenance, gas and drivers.
