MANKATO, MN - True Transit is offering rides to several county fairs.  The best part of all, they're free!
 
The busses will pick up riders at their homes and take them to the Blue Earth, Nicollet, or Le Sueur county fairs.  The service will then drop off riders back at their homes.  True Transit is offering the service to show people that public transportation can be clean and comfortable.
 
 
Paige Schuette, marketing and communications manager for VINE, said: "One thing we were hearing was that public transportation is scary.  They had heard about us, but they were kind of scared to try it.  So we thought, if we offer free rides maybe people would try it."
 
 
Rides to the Blue Earth County Fair start on July 26 and run from 9am to 4pm.  You will need to make a reservation at least 2 days in advance.  To save your seat on the bus, call 507-388-8783 or visit truetransit.org.
