The City of Fairfax CUE bus system, which George Mason students, faculty, and staff may ride for free with a valid ID, will celebrate its 20th anniversary in September with free rides, souvenirs, and more.

On Sept. 11, CUE passengers will receive “goodie bags” with stickers, buttons, key chains, magnets, and pens. Recipients of stickers will be entitled to ride CUE buses for free the whole day on Sept.12–regardless of your affiliation with Mason. Recipients of a button can ride CUE buses for free Sept. 11 to 17.

On Sept. 12, citizens and press representatives are invited to attend the presentation of a free, one-year CUE bus pass to the 12 millionth CUE bus passenger. A CUE bus will leave City Hall at 8 a.m. that day and travel to the Old Lee Highway CUE bus stop, where the 12 millionth passenger will be presented the free bus pass. There will be an 18- by 22-inch replica of the bus pass for photo opportunities.

On Sept. 13, all rides on the CUE bus will be free to celebrate Customer Appreciation Day during Try Transit Week. For more information, call Alex Verzosa, CUE transportation director, at (703)-385-7889.
