Free fares bring more riders to Gary Public Transportation Corporation
Offering free rides for a day gave the Gary Public Transportation Corporation a big boost in ridership.
GPTC offered free fares this past Saturday for National Transit Equity Day, which is observed each February 4, the birthday of Rosa Parks. The bus operator says it saw a 70-percent increase in ridership, compared to previous weekends.
The free fares were sponsored by Fuel Media, while other sponsors provided materials.
