We’ve given away all 1,000 Ride Clear passes. Thanks for your participation! Please follow us on Facebook for more exciting Ride Clear news.

Temperatures are already creeping up into the triple digits, which means that summertime smog is headed our way. If you haven’t already pledged to help us keep the air clear in July, now’s the time. We’re giving away 1,000 more Ride Clear passes today at www.utarideclear.com.

If you don’t want to wait for your pass to come in the mail, you can pick one up in person today. We’ll be giving away a limited number of passes today during our broadcast with the Doug Wright Show, from 9 a.m. to noon at Salt Lake Central Station, 250 S. 600 West, Salt Lake City.

The Ride Clear program is designed to help improve air quality by encouraging people to leave their cars at home on poor air quality days. According to Clean Air Utah, driving less is one of the best ways to reduce the ozone levels that create smog on hot, windless days.

The Ride Clear program is the result of a partnership between the Utah Transit Authority and Zions Bank. The passes are good for seven days of consecutive bus, TRAX and FrontRunner transit during the month of July. Passes are limited to two per household. To receive a pass, register at www.utarideclear.com.
