Thumbs up, thumbs down | Hickory Daily Record: "THUMBS UP to Greenway Public Transportation for giving the public a day of free fare. Greenway is the name of public bus system of Western Piedmont Regional Transit Authority. Next Thursday, September 22, you can ride for free on any of the fixed routes that serve Hickory, Newton and Conover. “Car Free Day” is a promotion for Greenway, but it’s a great opportunity for people to discover the convenience and cost-savings of riding the bus instead of taking a car everywhere you need or want to go. And, Greenway buses are handicap-friendly. You don’t have to spend a dime to find out if riding the bus is right for you. Go to www.mygreenway.org for a schedule. It’s a good way to scoot around the county."
