Santa Clarita plans to join transportation providers, local municipalities and businesses throughout California to celebrate California Clean Air Day today.
Offering free local and commuter trips on Santa Clarita’s CNG-powered buses is part of a statewide effort to improve air quality and promote public transportation, according to a city news release.
In addition, the city is excited to offer drivers free electric vehicle-charging at select EV-charging stations throughout Santa Clarita.
City staff are scheduled to be at the Jan Heidt Metrolink Station at 24300 Railroad Ave. from 2-4 p.m. offering informational pamphlets and giveaways.
“Transportation remains the single-largest source of air pollution in California. We hope that offering environmentally-friendly transportation incentives will encourage residents to take advantage of Santa Clarita’s green resources,” said Mayor Marsha McLean. “Reducing carbon emissions from fuel-powered vehicles not only creates a more sustainable future, but also helps preserve Santa Clarita’s ecosystem.”
The locations that will offer free charging include:
· Santa Clarita City Hall, 23920 Valencia Boulevard
· Valencia Heritage Park, 24155 Newhall Ranch Road
· Valencia Glen Park, 23750 Via Gavola
· The Centre, 20880 Centre Pointe Parkway
· Canyon Country Park, 17615 Soledad Canyon Road
· Old Town Newhall Parking Structure, 22551 9th Street
