Post Date:10/01/2019

CITY TO OFFER FREE ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING AND BUS RIDES
DURING CLEAN AIR DAY

The City of Santa Clarita will join transportation providers, local municipalities and businesses throughout California to celebrate California Clean Air Day by offering FREE local and commuter trips on Santa Clarita’s CNG powered buses on Wednesday, October 2, 2019, in an effort to improve air quality and promote public transportation. In addition, the City is excited to offer drivers FREE electric vehicle charging at select EV charging stations throughout Santa Clarita. City staff will also be present at the Jan Heidt Metrolink Station at 24300 Railroad Avenue from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.; offering informational pamphlets and giveaways.

“Transportation remains the single largest source of air pollution in California. We hope that offering environmentally-friendly transportation incentives will encourage residents to take advantage of Santa Clarita’s green resources,” said Mayor Marsha McLean. “Reducing carbon emissions from fuel-powered vehicles not only creates a more sustainable future, but also helps preserve Santa Clarita’s ecosystem.”
