Ozone Alert

Day declared

Environmental officials have declared Thursday as an Ozone Alert Day. Passengers ride fare-free on Cleveland Area Rapid Transit (CART) on Ozone Alert Days. All routes, except CART’s Sooner Express to Oklahoma City, will be fare free. The Sooner Express is a shared route with EMBARK (formerly METRO Transit) of Oklahoma City. Passengers will ride free on all other CART routes and on CARTaccess, the origin-to-destination service for the elderly and disabled. Air quality concerns prompted officials to alert the public of increased levels of air pollution in the central Oklahoma region. Automobiles and gasoline-powered engines are one source of these pollutants, so residents are encouraged to reduce air pollution by riding the bus. For more information on CART, visit www.rideCART.com or call 325-2278. Follow CART on Twitter at @CARTNorman, or like CART on Facebook.
