BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Golden Empire Transit said it will offer free rides on Monday because of poor air quality.
The Air Quality Index was at 154, officials said. An AQI over 150 is considered unhealthy and potentially hazardous to the general population.
The free rides cover GET’s fixed routes and On-Demand Paratransit on Oct. 4. On-Demand Microtransit will require riders to pay fares.
