Golden Empire Transit will offer local residents free transportation during unhealthy air days, the company said. 

When air quality exceeds 150 on the Air Quality Index, GET will offer free rides to anyone who needs them, in order to encourage people to avoid putting more vehicles on the roadway and contribute to that bad air quality, according to the company. 

GET encourages the public to follow their Facebook page and website in order to keep track of when it is offering free rides.

The funding for the free rides is provided by a Congestion Mitigation Air Quality grant of $603,471.
