The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) is dangling a free donut to encourage people to ride mass transit Thursday.

The RTC is encouraging valley residents to save money and ride transit on the sixth annual National Dump the Pump Day. Park your vehicle at any of the RTC Park & Ride locations throughout southern Nevada or simply walk up to a transit stop and take transit to your destination, saving you money.

Visit any of the park and ride locations below between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m., receive a free Krispy Kreme donut (while supplies last) and learn more about transportation alternatives from the RTC’s Club Ride Commuter Services Program.

Parking is free and spaces are available on a first come, first-serve basis.  Additional park and ride locations can be found at rtcsnv.com, including:
