OKLAHOMA CITY – You can leave you car parked Friday and still get to where you need to go thanks to Metro Transit.

They are offering free bus rides all day.

It’s part of an effort to get cars off the streets and reduce carbon emissions during Ozone Alert months.

According to the American Public Transportation Association, for every mile traveled on public transit, riders will produce 95 percent less carbon dioxide than driving.

Metro Transit is providing free rides until 6:45 p.m.
