Amtran Offers Free Fares as Bus Service Continues
Amtran will offer free rides on all buses on all routes beginning Friday, March 20 in an effort to support their customers and the community during the coronavirus pandemic.
“Our ridership is down as people reduce their activities to reduce their exposure,” according to Eric Wolf, Amtran’s General Manager. “Our current trips are almost exclusively to work, to the doctor, and to the grocery store. This is something that Amtran can do to help our customers during this health crisis and the resulting financial crisis. Individuals and organizations across the country are stepping up to help. This is what Americans do.”
Customers should use the rear door of the bus to board if they are able to do so to practice social distancing with Amtran’s bus driver.
Customers who need the kneeler or the ramp should use the front door as usual. Bus drivers will assist people with disabilities as they always do.
The free rides will continue for the foreseeable future.
"This is my nightly routine! And I just love talking to the bus drivers and love talking to everyone that rides the bus. There is never a dull moment when riding with new faces."
