Stay Cool, Ride METRO All Summer with Fare-Free Weekends

May 11, 2022, Akron, OH — METRO is celebrating summer with fare-free weekends every Saturday and Sunday in June, July, and August. Free rides apply on all METRO fixed-routes and ADA services.

“The past two years have been challenging for many people,” said Director of PR & Marketing Molly Becker. “The suspension of weekend fares allows METRO to give back to its core riders and encourages people to enjoy the many events taking place across Summit County this summer.”

Throughout the campaign, METRO will highlight events around the county that are accessible from a bus route. Riders are encouraged to post pictures of their weekend trips on social media using #StayCoolRideMETRO.

Refunds or credits will not be issued for tickets and passes previously activated or purchased. Free rides include valid, pre-scheduled ADA Complementary Paratransit trips. For more information about routes and schedules, visit akronmetro.org or call 330-762-0341.
