CET buses help reduce congestion and air pollution across our region, resulting in improved health and quality of life for Central Oregon residents. Public transportation use in the United States saves 4.2 billion gallons of gasoline annually. Communities that invest in public transportation reduce the nation’s carbon emissions by 37 million metric tons annually (American Public Transportation Association, 2017). Dial-A-Ride and Mt. Bachelor bus services are not included in the Earth Day free transit rides event—riders on those services are expected to pay full fares.
