ST. CLOUD -- If you're planning on riding the Metro Bus tomorrow (Saturday), don't worry about coming up with the fare because all fixed routes are free for the day.

The "Takin' It To The Streets" outdoor music festival in downtown St. Cloud will close 1st Street North, preventing access to the Transit Center.

The concert's presenting sponsor Bernick's is covering the cost of the free rides for the inconvenience to bus users.

Passengers will now board and get off the bus at the Lady Slipper lot one block west of the Transit Center. The free rides are for fixed routes only and will be for Saturday only.
