AKRON, Ohio — The METRO RTA in Akron is helping those affected by the cold temperatures.

Starting on Tuesday, they will be offering free fares on all services, including line-service, Northcoast Express, SCAT, and Call-A-Bus.

“We do not cancel operations; this is transportation people can rely on. We run 359 days a year, in all weather conditions,” said METRO Executive Director Dawn Distler. “We want to make the boarding process as easy as possible for folks coming in from the cold, so we decided to waive fares during the arctic blast. It was an easy decision to make.”

The company will be doing this through Friday.
