BY DORA SALTZMAN
In observance of Earth Day and to encourage environmentally friendly transportation, the San Luis Obispo County Regional Transit Authority (RTA) and South County Transit (SCT) will be offering free rides for all passengers throughout the county on Sunday, April 27.
The city will also be providing a special service on its popular double-decker bus to the 24th annual SLO Earth Day Fair and Music Festival at El Chorro Regional Park, across the street from Cuesta Community College’s main campus.
The bus will depart from the downtown Transit Center at Osos and Palm streets every hour on the hour from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. It will return on the half-hour from the college, with the last service back to SLO leaving at 4:30 p.m.
Free parking will be available at Cuesta College, along with a complimentary shuttle to and from the park.
The event is free and will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. There will be live music on three stages, wine tasting, food, local vendors, and children’s activities and games.
