MATBUS Celebrates Earth Week April 22-27


MATBUS invites residents to celebrate Earth Week, April 22-27, with the Get Your "Can" on the Bus promotion. MATBUS invites residents to ride for free when they donate one aluminum can on board fixed route vehicles. Proceeds from the recycling of collected cans will be donated to the Homeward Animal Shelter. This promotion is not valid on MAT Paratransit.

Public transportation plays an integral role in protecting our environment. Did you know that one MATBUS bus full of people removes up to 50 cars from the road? That’s a line of cars approximately four city blocks long. Riding public transportation instead of using a personal vehicle is one of the most effective ways for citizens to reduce their individual carbon footprints.

Community Events:
• Party for the Planet – April 20 at the Red River Zoo from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
• Get Your ‘Can’ on the Bus – April 22-27
