Cincinnati Metro Celebrates 100th Birthday Of Patron With Free Rides
Meet Anna Tolliver. Just turning 100 years old, she still rides the Cincinnati Metro about three times a week for shopping and doctor’s appointments. She commuted downtown on Metro daily for 35 years before retiring from her job at the Town Club of Cincinnati.
Anna participates in Metro’s Fare Deal program which offers reduced fare for qualified older adults and people with disabilities are certified for the program, has about 8,700 registered customers.
Now the nonprofit transportation system is paying it forward. To celebrate her special day , the wonderful folks at Cincinnati Metro have given Anna an entire year of free bus rides to help her maintain her independence…which would mean until her 101st birthday.
Now that’s a reason to smile!
