IA: Try Transit Free Day Sept. 21 in Dubuque

The Jule Transit is providing free bus rides on all fixed route and paratransit bus services on Sept. 21, to encourage residents to try public transit and to encourage participation at the City’s BBQ in DBQ event at Clarke University.

The Jule will waive fares throughout the day and into the evening, including Nightrider service. Jule Transit Director Candace Eudaley said Transit Free Day came about to provide service to BBQ in DDQ, but also in response to feedback received at last week’s City Expo.

“We heard from a lot of residents at City Expo that they didn’t know where all of the routes went and that they wanted to give it a try and introduce their kids to public transit,” Eudaley said. “What better way to try transit than having a free day to hop on the bus and seeing where it goes.”

Residents are encouraged to board the bus at any stop or transfer area, ride a route to see where each bus goes, and meet The Jule’s drivers.
