In celebration of May in Motion, Valley Regional Transit is offering rides on all ValleyRide buses or rentals via Boise GreenBike at no cost throughout the month of May. The free rides will be available on all 20 fixed bus routes in Boise, three fixed bus routes in Nampa/Caldwell and six inter-county bus routes between Ada and Canyon counties. Additionally, GreenBike rentals will be free at more than 81 official stations and flex hubs, which offer more than 120 bikes.

Valley Ride officials say the monthlong May in Motion campaign is designed to educate and encourage more Treasure Valley residents to get around without their cars. Instead, transit officials say drivers should consider other options such as ValleyRide buses, carpooling, vanpooling and, of course, walking or riding.
