Comments

For those interested in the CDTA free Event Day Bus Passes, they are available at the listed locations whose hours range from 7:30am at the earliest to 5:00pm at the latest. So if you have a job, tough. Better idea might be to just instruct bus drivers to let passengers heading that way on for free.
