Riding Bangor’s BAT bus and other forms of public transportation throughout the region could help your budget.
To give you an incentive to try it, you can ride local busses for free every Friday for the rest of the month.
The governor’s office says the first ":free fare friday": promotion was so successful last fall that it’s being offered again.
As the result of the program and the rising cost of gas, ridership has increased greatly.
That’s also the case for the various carpool and vanpool programs.
