Look for a fun way to spend a summer day while doing something good for the environment? This Thursday, June 19, 2014 is “National Dump the Pump Day". Take the kids on a FREE JO bus ride around Johnson County, while teaching kids about saving gas and improving air quality. Try The Jo for FREE this Thursday, and start a conversation with the kids about discuss the benefits of riding The JO, like:
- Walk or bike to bus stop for exercise (your bike rides The JO at no additional cost.)
- Cost is cheaper than driving – use our cost of driving calculator www.jocogov.org/dept/transit/rider-services/savings-calculator
- Saves wear & tear on personal vehicles and roads
- Improves air quality during ozone season (June 1 – September 30)
- Free Wi-Fi
- Parents and kids can read together while someone else does the driving!
To take advantage of this fun no-cost way to get around town, you won't need any special pass -- just get on board and travel to where you need to go! You can find a route and get more information at this web site:
So, where will The JO take you this Thursday?
