Free bus rides, more mark 'car-free' events

Ditch your usual four wheels today and try another way of getting from here to there: It's World Carfree Day, and bus service is free around the valley.

Events also are planned in Ashland as part of the town's annual Car Free Day Celebration.

Rogue Valley Transportation District is offering a week's worth of transit-oriented events, including free rides on all bus routes today.

In Ashland, a celebration is set from 4 to 7 p.m. on Oak Street between Lithia Way and Main Street, in front of Standing Stone Brewing Co.

Bicyclists plan a "Share the Road" ride down Oak Street at 5:30 p.m., and bike maintenance, a bike safety rodeo, music, food and more are planned during the event.
