KAT offering free bus rides

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Knoxville Area Transit is offering free bus rides through November.

KAT is working with the Smart Trips Program and the town of Farragut to promote the use of the 102X - Farragut Express Route.

Knoxville Area Transit will be offering the express route service fare-free on Tuesdays in October and November to entice people to ride for change.

The Smart Trips Program will be awarding prizes to passengers on the morning trips on Free Tuesdays in October and November.

Several current passengers have agreed to act as "Transit Mentors" and explain the basics to new riders, such as reading a schedule, knowing where to get off and where to catch the bus in the afternoons.

They can also explain the Smart Trips Emergency Ride Home program and the other benefits of Smart Trips.
