    COG Forecasts 1st Code Orange Bad Air Day
    Free Rides Thursday On Northern Virginia Buses

    WASHINGTON -- The Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments has forecast a code orange bad air quality day for Thursday.

    That means ozone levels are predicted to be extremely high and the air quality very poor.

    Heat Index Calculator | Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments | Ride Free Program

    The Northern Virginia Transportation Commission announced Wednesday that all bus rides in northern Virginia will be free on all code orange and code red days.

    Participating systems include: Alexandria DASH, Arlington Transit (ART), City of Fairfax (CUE), City of Falls Church (George), the Fairfax Connector, Loudoun County Transit, OmniRide/OmniLink, Virginia Regional Transit and Metrobus.

    The NVTC said this is being done to lure people out of their cars and onto mass transit to lessen the impact of toxic emissions and to meet Environmental Protection Agency's air quality standards.

    According to the American Lung Association, high ozone levels act as a powerful respiratory irritant at the levels frequently found in the D.C. area during summer months.

    The ALA said ozone exposure may lead to shortness of breath, chest pains when inhaling deeply and wheezing and coughing.

    Long-term, repeated exposure to high levels of ozone may lead to reductions in lung function, inflammation of the lung lining and increased respiratory discomfort.

    Besides Rick, trains are good for your morning nap.
    AND for my afternoon nap on the ride home too!
