Free rides on Fairfax Connector Sept. 29

In celebration of it's 30th anniversary, Fairfax Connector is offering free rides on all buses on Tuesday, September 29. All buses have bike racks located on the front of the bus that can carry 2 bikes. If you've ever wanted to try using the racks to extend your trip, this is a great opportunity.

The Connector has posted a photo tutorial on using the racks.

Now if we could just convince the Connector drivers to come to a complete stop before turning right on red. I've contacted Connector management multiple times about drivers looking left and turning right on red without stopping but unfortunately it regularly happens. Be sure to make eye contact with Connector drivers and any motorists before crossing in front of them.

From the Connector:
