NCTD Offers Free Rides to Commemorate Rosa Parks’ Birthday

All NCTD transit modes FREE Sunday, February 4 – “Transit Equity Day” 

Oceanside, CA – The North County Transit District (NCTD) is participating in the nationwide Transit Equity Day by offering FREE rides on all of its modes. This special day on February 4 is to celebrate the birthday of civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks. To commemorate all that Rosa Parks did for equality, NCTD is offering free rides on COASTER, BREEZE, SPRINTER, FLEX and LIFT – free for the entire day on Sunday, February 4, 2024.

In 1955, in Montgomery, Alabama, Rosa Parks was riding home from a long day at work on a public bus when she refused to give up her seat to white riders so they could sit down. The actions of the 42-year-old activist invigorated the struggle for racial equality.

“Decades after Ms. Park’s bold decision, we must continue to advocate for accessible, reliable, and affordable public transportation for all,” said Jewel Edson, NCTD Board Chair and Solana Beach Deputy Mayor. “Offering free rides highlights the value of providing equitable access to public transportation.”

Free rides on Sunday, February 4, 2024, apply to NCTD modes of transportation only and does not include transfers to Metropolitan Transit System (MTS), or AMTRAK Rail-to-Rail services.
