Did you know, against all odds, our area boasts a regional public transit system that can take you from La Crosse to Prairie du Chien or Viroqua or Tomah (and points in between) for $4 or less?

The Scenic Mississippi Regional Transit (SMRT) system runs buses several times a day to get workers to jobs, patients to clinics, students to school, youth and elders to families, and adventurers to far off places without the need of a car. 

Today, Tuesday, Jan. 30, in recognition of Transit Equity days, the SMRT buses will be FREE. That means you can hop on a mid-morning bus at one of several La Crosse stops and ride to Viroqua for lunch and some shopping and then return later in the day for free. (And, there's a public shared-ride taxi service in Viroqua if you need a ride when you're there.)

Learn more and get schedules at the website: RIDESMRT.com and watch for La Crosse Area Transit Advocates' spring Ride SMRT 2 Viroqua ride later this year.
