Transit Tuesday 

The day has been proclaimed &quot:Transit Tuesday,&quot: and will be celebrated around the state.

Transit operators will offer free rides as part of a weeklong celebration of commuting options. Those alternatives include mass transit options such as buses, and car pooling, as well as low economic and environmentally impacting transportation modes like biking and walking.

The Bangor Area Transit, or BAT buses in Bangor is taking part in the project.
