Potential bus riders will have the opportunity to ride Wichita city buses for free from July 14 to 19, as part of a city-wide effort to promote ridership and reduce vehicle emissions, according to a news release.

While taking a free ride on the bus, riders can participate in Wichita Transit’s “Selfie on the Bus” contest. If participants post a self-portrait to Wichita Transit’s Facebook page with the hashtag #wichitatransitselfie, they can win one of eight $50 Visa gift cards at the end of the week.

For more information on Free Fares Week and to see a bus schedule, visit www.wichitatransit.org.
