PERTH COUNTY – Travelling within Perth County this March Break just got a whole lot easier, as the PC Connect Transit Service will be offering free rides during the week.

“We are thrilled to be offering another free ride promotion to encourage residents of all ages to try the PC Connect service at no cost,” said Maggie Kerr, transit project coordinator for Perth County.
