Local Fairfax restaurants and the Mason Transportation Department are teaming up to welcome students and employees back to the new semester by offering free food when they ride the CUE Bus during the week of Aug. 27.

In order to receive free food, the Mason rider must ask the CUE Bus driver for a voucher from the restaurant that is sponsoring the promotion that day. Once the voucher is presented, the rider must present their Mason ID and the voucher to the wait staff at the restaurant to receive free food.

The CUE Bus ride is always free when you present your Mason ID. The CUE Bus stop on the Fairfax Campus is on Patriot Circle

near the intersection with George Mason Blvd.
