The COMET will be offering free rides on the Holiday buses as a gift to the community. Any passenger that boards a bus with Christmas decorations will ride that bus for free. There will be two-holiday buses circulating throughout The COMET transit system December 15 – 24. The Holiday buses will change routes to give passengers a chance to catch The COMET for free for the holidays.
