Glendale, CA - Be green and save some green on Earth Day by riding Beeline and Metro buses on Sunday, April 22, 2018.  All buses in Glendale are providing free rides all day to encourage drivers to ditch their cars and take the bus to improve air quality and reduce greenhouse gasses.

Glendale Beeline was the first transit agency in Los Angeles County to be 100% CNG fueled. It's clean energy system makes riding the Beeline one of the most effective actions individuals can take to reduce their carbon footprint. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, cars, SUVs, and pickup trucks running on conventional gasoline and diesel fuels account for roughly two-thirds of transportation-related emissions, ranking transportation as the second largest source of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions.  By taking the bus, the average transit rider saves one pound of CO2 emissions for each mile traveled – that adds up quickly to make a big impact.  Do your share for clean air and help fight climate change on Earth Day or any other day by taking the Beeline instead of driving.

Glendale Beeline operates nine fixed routes serving the cities of Glendale and La Cañada Flintridge and the unincorporated areas of La Crescenta and Montrose. Visit GlendaleBeeline.com for more information.
