This is also the perfect opportunity to take advantage of free Westbound rides for Valentine’s Day, and plan a date in the city.

Nicole Barker, Director of Capital Investment & Implementation, said, “The winter months can drudge on and sometimes feel like there is no end in sight. We wanted to let our riders know how valuable they are and also provide them something to look forward to during this season of shorter, colder days. Hopefully everyone can take advantage of the free Westbound rides while heading to the auto show, and then again for a date night in the city for Valentine’s Day.”
