The Berks Area Regional Transportation Authority will offer a free ride day on Wednesday, May 3, 2023 for Rider Appreciation Day.
The free ride day is part of a statewide Rider Appreciation initiative developed in coordination with the Pennsylvania Public Transportation Association (PPTA) and transit agencies across the Commonwealth. Many transit agencies are offering customers complimentary rides on Wednesday as a show of appreciation for their continued ridership.
BARTA says all customers will ride free, but do ask that Senior Citizens and Reading High School Students show their ID’s so they can properly count ridership during the day.
Also, 31 Day Pass Customers who have the BARTA Go Mobile Account will receive a complimentary All Day Pass in their account so they are compensated for the Appreciation Day. Any 31 Day pass customer using a magnetic paper pass are asked to visit the BARTA Transportation Center to receive their complimentary All Day Pass.
