WICHITA, Kan. -

The city of Wichita is hoping citizens will take advantage of the city's public transportation during Free Fares Week.

From Monday, July 14 through Saturday, July 19, citizens can ride Wichita public transportation for free.

The city says the less cars on the streets will help Wichita improve its air quality.

Free Fares is funded by the Wichita Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (WAMPO) as a project to reduce congestion and improve air quality in the Wichita metro region.

Free Fares Week participants can enter the Bus Selfie Contest for a chance to win one of eight $50 VISA gift cards. To enter, ride the bus during Free Fares Week, take a selfie on the bus, "like" the Wichita Transit Facebook page and post your selfie with the #wichitatransitselfie. One entry per person. Entries must be posted by midnight July 19. Winners announced July 22.
