Free fall fares on KAT's Farragut Express Route


FARRAGUT (WATE) - Knoxville Area Transit will offer free fares on its Farragut Express Route on Tuesdays in October and November.

The route takes park and ride passengers from Campbell Station Road to the University of Tennessee and downtown during peak morning and afternoon hours, Monday through Friday.

The free fares kick off Tuesday morning, October 2. Passengers on the 6:45 a.m., 7:15 a.m. and 7:45 a.m. departures will be greeted by the Farragut mayor and alderman serving donuts and coffee.

The Smart Trips Program will also award prizes to passengers on those Free Tuesdays.

"Taking the bus a few days a week can make a noticeable difference in fuel costs and provides a stress-free commute," said KAT General Manager Cindy McGinnis.

Several current KAT passengers will act as "Transit Mentors," explaining the basics to new riders. They can also explain the Smart Trips Emergency Ride Home program and other benefits.

Passengers have launched a Facebook page to educate people on how to ride and why they enjoy the service.
