Free bus service begins Thursday in Fairbanks

Posted: Thursday, November 01, 2001

FAIRBANKS (AP) -- Free public bus service will begin Thursday in Fairbanks.

The Fairbanks North Star Borough accepted a federal grant allowing it to waive the $1.50 fee to ride the bus.

The free service will last through the winter in an attempt to keep carbon monoxide levels down.

A breech of federal carbon monoxide standards could activate sanctions, such as limits on the number of vehicles on the road.

The borough also is conducting a campaign encouraging motorists to use electric heaters to warm their vehicles before starting them. Warm vehicles emit less carbon monoxide than cold vehicles.
