SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - No ticket will be needed on San Diego’s buses, trolleys, Coaster, and Sprinter Wednesday as part of the Metropolitan Transit System’s Free Ride Day.

This is the second year of the event, which encourages San Diego County residents to find alternatives to solo commutes.

Travelers have a chance to win prizes including SDSU football tickets, Starbucks and Vons gift cards, and a stay at Sycuan Casino Resort at pop-up booths and online.

Free Ride Day occurs during SANDAG iCommute’s Rideshare Week, and is held in conjunction with California Clean Air Day.
