For the past 12 years, Tulsa Transit has provided citizens free bus rides on Ozone Alert days. But budget cuts were threatening to stop the service.

Tuesday morning it was announced that Oklahoma Natural Gas will sponsor the free rides, so they’ll continue.

State and local officials say it's important to ride the bus, carpool or walk on Ozone Alert days to stay in compliance with EPA standards.

Last year alone Tulsa had eight Ozone Alert days.
