Torrance Transit were busy getting into the holiday spirit this morning.

Decorating a Transit bus inside and out with festive ribbons marked the first year the Torrance Transit team has spruced up buses for the holiday season. It’s all to celebrate the department’s 75th anniversary.

Each year Torrance Transit runs the Holiday Shopper, a free service that allows shoppers to let someone else do the driving. It runs each weekend starting Saturday from the Del Amo Fashion Center to Hawthorne and Artesia boulevards.

And this year, one special bus will be traveling throughout the transit system surprising riders with a free ride during the week. So look for the decorated Torrance Transit bus to get a free lift!

The free rides on the weekend will end Dec. 19, the Saturday before Christmas.
