Free Ride isn’t just a classic summer song from the Edgar Winter Group.

It’s a thing in the Comox Valley over the holiday long weekend.

Free fares on all transit routes are being offered from Saturday to B.C. Day Monday.

Regular routes and schedules will apply on Saturday and Sunday, with special service available on the holiday Monday. 

The free long-weekend fare is supported by Comox Business in Action, and will apply to all routes in the Comox Valley Transit System.
