Rhubarb Dwyer submitted a new file to the StP library:

Free Public Transit - This is a compilation of free bus/train options in the US

This file is a searchable document compiled from StP users who share what they know about free transit around the US.

I will continue to add more listings as I learn about them.

Disclaimer: This does not include ways to get around paying. These are actually free. Also, I do not plan on verifying any of this. The notes I include are paraphrasing other users. So, check this shit out before you board.

This is not a map. I had to choose a prefix.

The download worked fine on my end. Not sure why it isn't working for you @MilkaNoobie
I'd try checking your browser or download settings, but I'm not exactly the most web-minded one on here...
Perhaps a more tech savvy @Staff could offer help?

You have me wondering tho if it's possible to travel from city bus to city bus all the way across America
Certainly not for free!!

But, GMaps would know. Their 'transit' option used to be sketchy, but a lot of cities are forwarding trip planning to them.

I guess it might be tricky, though, since it will incude long-haul bus options like Megabus and Greyhound.

I love the idea. Would be curious to figure it out one day.

Busses in Indian River County FL are free and there are like 15 routes. They just don't run on Sundays or past 7 pm week days. It's pretty reliable and goes nearly everywhere in the county

A couple others I'd add here:

-The Yosemite National Park buses in CA
-The newly-free Kansas City transit system
-The intercity transit buses in Olympia, WA
-Asking anyone with an unlimited Metrocard for a swipe in any NYC subway station ("Got a swipe?" or swiping hand motion) is free to all parties.

So yes this is a relevant thought especially while one is on a free bus ride that does make difference on covering ground .. as im assuming my experience has been in the NW on casino buses .. some are NOT all about just getting you to the casino but DO help with getting folks to home and back to work at plants that provide income and food on americas table ...example ..i.e. Citur (?!??) tribal buses... they run from small towns to pendleton , Or.. where one can get off in pendleton at few different stops and catch another one out to another town avoiding the whole casino.. and the casino people..
If in eastern Oregon ( la grande, Pendleton, Hermiston... or WW , wa. ) just ask city folk about the Casino Buses when and where...
Now is there other pkaces llike this ... Hmmmm please tell me so...
Walla Walla use to do sunmertime free bus fare around town...

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$150.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $150.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
