All bus rides across the Chatham-Kent Transit service are free of charge today in honour of Clean Air Day.

It’s hoped the effort will raise awareness and encourage action on clean air and climate change issues as well as contribute to the overall health of Chatham-Kent residents.

The Chatham-Kent Public Health Unit is encouraging people to carpool, walk, bike or roller blade to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Clean Air Day is recognized across Canada.
