GVT Offers Holiday Shopping Service with Free Ride Saturdays

Free Ride Saturdays: Nov. 30, Dec. 7, Dec. 14, & Dec. 21

Mesa County Regional Transportation Planning Office (RTPO) and Grand Valley Transit (GVT) would like to take some of the stress out of holiday shopping this season and encourage people to shop local by offering Free Ride Saturdays.  All Mesa County residents and visitors can ride GVT fixed-route all day Saturday for four consecutive Saturdays, starting Nov. 30 through Dec. 21.

Free Ride Saturdays will kick off on Nov. 30, which is also Small Business Saturday, encouraging shoppers to support local businesses in Fruita, Palisade, and Grand Junction.  Parking is often limited during local holiday events.

Mesa County RTPO is encouraging everyone to skip the hassle of finding parking on Dec. 7, during Olde Fashioned Christmas in Palisade, or at the Parade of Lights in Downtown Grand Junction.

GVT will also take passengers to Fruita on Dec. 14, for the annual Home Town Christmas event, which features a craft fair during the day and the parade in the evening.  Finally, for all those last-minute gifts, Free Ride Saturdays will also be available on Dec. 21.

Sometimes the weather and traffic can also make holiday shopping a challenge, with Free Ride Saturdays, GVT hopes to help the community save a little money, help those with limited transportation, and allow riders to enjoy the holidays a little more this year.

Free Ride Saturdays will be available on GVT fixed-route on Nov. 30, Dec. 7, Dec. 14, and Dec. 21.
